Tonight on Extension 720: A great pre-4th of July show! Rick Atkinson, bestselling author of the Liberation Trilogy, talks about his terrific new book, “The British Are Coming: The War for America, Lexington to Princeton, 1775-1777.” Do you need plans for the 4th? Well, you are in luck because Paul Winberg, CEO of the Grant Park Music Festival, tells us about the Grant Park Music Festival’s “Independence Day Salute” show this Thursday night. We also get a recap of the WGN Softball Team’s (Justin is a three-time softball champion. Have you heard?) big 16-3 win over the Chicago Reader with interim head coach Ernie Scatton.
This is the podcast for Extension 720. The show originates from Chicago on WGN Radio and features newsmakers, tastemakers and trailblazers. Hosted by award-winning broadcaster Justin Kaufmann, this talk show/audio magazine goes in-depth to help you better understand the city (and world) that you live in.
