 WBEZ change don't come EZ: Chicago Public Radio says dropping music Chicago Sun-Times - Find Articles
Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 10, 2006 by mike thomas

In Chicago, where musical roots (of jazz and blues, in particular) run deep, the decision to drop every music block on the schedule seems especially egregious.
