Mike Stephen talks with:

 

 

  • Chicago Pen Show owner Paul Conterato for a preview of the oldest writing utensil exhibition in the country; and

 

  • Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) about jingle-writing prog rockers Poor Richard for this week’s edition of The Secret History of Chicago Music.

 

Meanwhile, we discuss how to support Independent Bookstore Day today and why there aren’t more gender-neutral restrooms in Chicago.

 

This week’s local music is provided by Minor Moon.
