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
