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 talks to musicologist Nolan Gasser about his new book WHY YOU LIKE IT: THE SCIENCE AND CULTURE OF MUSICAL TASTE. The book aims to shed some light on why people like the music they listen to. The Dueling Critics, Kerry Reid and Jonathan Abarbanel, stop by to review the new Chicago-set play THE UNDENIABLE SOUND OF RIGHT NOW. A little later, Gary talks to food writer Amy Cavanaugh about some of the restaurant openings she’s most excited about this summer. Plus this week’s Arts Section calendar.
Arts Section Host Gary Zidek puts a spotlight on local and independent films virtually every week. This section includes reviews of recent films, discussions with film critics and interviews with filmmakers and actors.
