The John Williams Show Full Podcast 06.25.18: Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the Red Hen, Twitter on Childish Gambino’s “This is America,” Ricardo Muti
John kicks off the week with a recap of the Chicago Gay Pride Parade, in which WGN Radio participated. And, he tells you about his discussion with Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi in the Congressman’s town hall meeting earlier this morning. John then plays back a conversation between Steve Cochran and Justin Kaufmann today, during which they judged the rights exercised by Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the Red Hen in Virginia. You weigh in on that. We find out that one Twitter user stirred controversy over the weekend, claiming that Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, copied another artist’s song in writing the beloved song, “This is America.” John plays for you just a few other comparisons of songs whose artists have been sued for copyright infringement. Finally, we want to know what happened at Ravinia over the weekend, leading to a seemingly angry Ricardo Muti.
