About the Show


Last June, my then-third-year friends and I watched our fourth-year roommates graduate from my apartment living room. Between each cheer was a nervous glance at each other that read, “no chance this will be us too, right?”

It’s been a full year, and we’ll officially be members of the second college class to graduate into a pandemic. Those of us who haven’t traveled about during remote learning have leaned into the music to do it for us: for myself, a summer of Thai Funk turned into a year of new discoveries and old deep dives, setting up a spring of resounding revival.

Every quarter is a mess, but I’d be lying if I said I don’t want to tap in one last time. Listen in for tunes to guide you through the quarter and reacquaint yourself with the Chicago sun. Old or young, first or fourth-plus, Chicago or elsewhere, join me in grooving to something a little different each week.
