Mike Stephen talks with:
- Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) about R&B-influenced pianist Detroit Junior for this week’s “Post-Winter Blues” edition of The Secret History of Chicago Music;
- Scrappers Film Group journalism producer Yana Kunichoff about Where Can I Protest?, the fourth episode of the “Rights Lab” web series that’s screening at Comfort Station; and
- experimental rock band The Owls Seem What They Are Not (featuring OTL #463 musical guest Reade Wildman), who hung out live for the hour! Check out their new record Whirl Around The Whirr Rider Riding A Whale Down A Waterfall.
Meanwhile, we discuss the questionable legality of a political sign at a busy Chicago intersection.
Local band The Owls Seem What They Are Not (Webb Dieter, Nolan Marchi, Reade Widman, Jackie Tangg)
now share a special bond with Mike Stephen after rocking the soundtrack for OTL #496.
Webb Dieter, Jackie Tangg, Nolan Marchi (pictured in window reflection), and Reade Widman of The Owls Seem What They Are Not jam a tune from their new Whirl Around The Whirr Rider Riding A Whale Down a Waterfall record on an early Chicago Saturday morning.
