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 Zidek sits down with the director and cast of the new film EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE. The musical is an adaptation of popular stage production, that was inspired by a true story. The Dueling Critics, Kerry Reid and Jonathan Abarbanel, will join me to talk about a new audio play that incorporates a lot of Chicago history. Later in the show, Gary catches up with the executive director of FACETS to talk about the cinema-focused non-profit’s future as it prepares to reopen to the public. And Leslie Keros looks at Alligator Records’ 50th anniversary.
