Two lakefront communities–one big, one small: comparing Chicago and Evanston

November 3, 2011

         On last Wednesday’s edition of WBEZ’s Eight Forty-Eight, host Alison Cuddy shared the mike with two guests, TribLocal reporter Jonathan Burlington and WBEZ’s Director of Corporate Sponsorship and Business Development, Paul Friedman. Cuddy posed intriguing questions about the current state of budget negotiations in both communities and invited comparisons. There were a number of comments about the question of library funding, and how the two communities might differ in reacting to drastic cuts in hours and service. Listen to the broadcast here.

WBEZ Jazz Collection for Sale This Thursday

February 14, 2011

Dick Buckley, WBEZ’s  jazz DJ for many years, passed away last year. His entire music collection of over 8,000 items will be auctioned off this Thursday at Leslie Hindman’s auction house in Chicago. Buckley was a walking font of musical knowledge, which he clearly enjoyed sharing on the air. It seems this sale and gathering will be conducted in that spirit.
