Dave Hoekstra visits with prolific Chicago rockers Frank Raven and Jay O’Rourke, who play a couple of live tunes from Raven’s new record “Lucky Cat”.  They talk about the project’s origins in the Lucky 3 Blues Band with Frank, Jay and punk poet/vocalist Jim Desmond.

They also discuss Jay’s long career in producing acts from Liz Phair to the Dead Kennedys, meeting Frank through the Slammin’ Watusis (and eventually getting them a record deal), and much more from the city’s punk and blues scenes in the ’80’s.
