The Arts Section
Program Host(s): Gary Zidek
The Arts Section spotlights creative people, events and ideas. Every week, WDCB's Gary Zidek shines a light on arts and culture in the Chicago area. The mission is to focus on stories within the arts community that aren't being told, with additional commentary and discussions on literature, music, film, food, special events and anything else creative.
You can listen to The Arts Section every Sunday 8:00 - 9:00 am on 90.9/90.7 FM or online at WDCB.org

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary pays tribute to jazz legend Miles Davis as we approach what would have been his birthday on May 26. Gary revisits a feature on a documentary (MILES DAVIS: BIRTH OF THE COOL) about Davis’ life and career that was released last year. Later in the program, WDCB’s own Paul Abella and Leslie Keros join Gary for a discussion about their favorite Miles albums. The Dueling Critics, Kerry Reid and Jonathan Abarbanel, review Goodman Theatre’s streaming version of SCHOOL GIRLS, OR THE AFRICAN MEAN GIRLS PLAY. And Gary talks to co-founders of a Chicago organization providing support to women and non-binary filmmakers of color.
