Mike Stephen talks with Chicago’s 2nd Ward Alderman Brian Hopkins about media production companies paying for lost parking and extending The 606 past the Kennedy and the river, checks in with 33rd Ward Working Families spokesman Nick Burt about his organization’s successful referendum against charter schools in the election, and chats with Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) about moody Hyde Park band The Imports for this week’s “The Fall of Punk” edition of The Secret History of Chicago Music. Meanwhile, let’s take action. Now is the time to get your skin in the game. This week’s local music is provided by The Claudettes.
