Morning Shift: August 27, 2015

Summer 2015 is nearing its end, but with fall comes many things including a plethora of arts events. We get a Fall Arts Preview, courtesy of the hosts of the WBEZ podcast General Admission. We also hear about efforts to get more young African Americans interested in playing tennis. There’s an expansive tennis facility going up on the site of the former site of the Robert Taylor public housing complex. Also, 60 years ago today, the small town of Whiting, Ind. was shaken by a huge blast at the Standard Oil Facility. Luckily the number of injuries and deaths was minuscule. We talk with the producer of a documentary about that fateful day. And WBEZ reporter Monica Eng gives us the lowdown on new rules for school vaccinations and what it means for your child.
