Current Episode

August 20th, 2017

 

On this edition of the Arts Section, host Gary Zidek visits a first of its kind art gallery, dedicated exclusively to video game art.  The new VGA Gallery recently opened its new permanent space in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood.  Gary also talks to the director of a new documentary that looks back the rise and fall of one of the greatest funk-soul bands of all time and asks what happened to Sly Stone?  Gary sat down with the creators behind a unique film screening event ... that’s a truly one night only.  We’ll hear from Chicago jazz drummer Charles Heath. And the Dueling Critics will join me a little later to review a restaging of the swashbuckling THE FAIR MAID OF THE WEST.
