Reclaimed Soul (Thursdays 8-10PM CST)

Featuring sound rich interviews and an all-vinyl playlist (courtesy of host Ayana Contreras), Reclaimed Soul is about taking old materials (records, buildings, ideas, et al) to push us all forward.

Tonight on Reclaimed Soul, host Ayana Contreras plays an original 1971 Curtis Mayfield colored wax promo (in a shade she’s calling ghostwax). We’ll also hear music by Krystal Generation, Delia Gartrell, McKinley Mitchell, Gary Knight, The Arrangement, and much more.

Plus, we eavesdrop on rehearsals for Opera-matic’s very cool New Moon on the Lagoon, an “evening lullaby parade”, featuring a 15 foot tall giant moon that will be lit up from within by projections of facial expressions. It’ll be happening Friday May 10th and 11th at the Humboldt Park Lagoon in Chicago. For more info, visit: http://opera-matic.org/upcoming-events/
