Glen Cambell died of Alzheimer’s Tuesday, and his death reminds John of a documentary about the enrichment music can give to someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Music & Memory Founder Dan Cohen joins John to explain exactly that connection. Then, Niche released a report that five Chicagoland area high schools made it to the list of top 10 best high schools in the country. John speaks with the spokesman for number three, Adlai E.
