Mike Stephen talks with Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE) executive director Amy Rasmussen about bringing art to public school classrooms and making a positive impact on the lives of students, checks in with Tree House Humane Society Cats at Work program manager Paul Nickerson about how feral cats can help control the local rat population, and chats with Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) about protopunk weirdos Silver Abuse for this week’s “The Fall of Punk” edition of The Secret History of Chicago Music. Meanwhile, we discuss throwing your trash in the garbage bins — whether they’re “your” bins or not. Just don’t contaminate our recycling! This week’s local music is provided by The Artist Formerly Known as Vince.
