The Arts Section 08/02/15

August 2nd, 2015

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek talks to New York-based author Mary Morris about her latest book, THE JAZZ PALACE.  We’ll hear about a Brooklyn-based non-profit that’s bringing opera to small venues across the country, including Chicago.  WDCB’s Brian O’Keefe has a story about a company that’s tapping into the craft beverage market in a unique way.  The Dueling Critics will join Gary with a review of the touring production of "Pippin", which is in Chicago for a limited run. Plus, an old interview between Edward Murrow and Louis Armstrong.

  

Gary caught up with author Mary Morris, who's latest novel paints a vibrant picture of Chicago at the dawn of the Jazz Age.

Morris was in Paris during the interview, she sent Gary a picture of a sign she encountered.
