On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek previews the Grammy Awards. Chicago music writer Jessica Roti stops by to talk about who will win … and if the Grammys matter anymore. We’ll also hear from the author of new book about Abraham Lincoln. And the Dueling Critics review a musical about a dark chapter of American history. And in honor of national Pizza Day, Gary revisits a story he did on the U.S. Pizza Museum.
Gary asked Jessi Roti who she thinks will win album of the year, record of the year and best new artist?
