The Chicago scene fascinates me. Also interested in the way it bleeds into the Bitchin' Bajas / Haley Fohr end of the spectrum.

La Jetée is hitting the spot.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:28am tim from champaign:

Great show, Scott! When I lived in Champaign, IL (90 mils south of Chicago) I was fortunate enough to catch many stellar Chicago players in the 12 years I was there. The performances would often happen in a the main gallery of the campus art museum so the setting was incredible to hear/watch great music.
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:29am John from Florham Park:

@ Tim did you ever listen to WXRT at all
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:33am tim from champaign:

I don't think so John. When I'd go up to Chicago I'd definitely tune into WZRD while driving around.
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:34am Greg R.:

@tim I went to school in Champaign! Loved the music scene there many years ago (it was one of the few highlights from those years).

and @John, WXRT was very good for a while (through the 90s?) then the programming became way too nostalgic for my taste.
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:36am John from Florham Park:

@Tim will check out wzrd in a while
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:37am John from Florham Park:

@greg they are one of the few commercial stations I listen too anymore but I get what your saying
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:39am tim from champaign:

@Greg R - cool! I was there from 2006-2018, I got there after the heyday. I had friends who were around in the 80s-90s and the scene sounded awesome. Lots of bands, clubs and record stores. The "indie rock scene" while I was there was not my deal at all. I did love going to jazz/international/experimental concerts offered at the university.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:40am steveo:

interesting, from (freeform) WZRD: "Our DJs are anonymous on-air. You can call us wizards. (You’ll get used to it)."
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:42am John from Florham Park:

@steveo would rather know the names of DJs
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:44am Greg R.:

I was in Champaign in early 90s and it was very good. Only saw a couple jazz bands then.

John, an old school mate DJs online at CHIRP radio. His show is very WFMU-ish. maybe worth checking out that station. I still give XRT a listen when I'm back in town, always a warm spot for it.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:44am steveo:

no schedule either, they say -- yeah, I like that the djs have personalities on WFMU
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:45am mb:

More Hamid Drake. Just wow and thx for another top shelf show, DJ Scott McDowell!!
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:46am John from Florham Park:

@greg love CHIRP!!!!!!!!
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:47am tim from champaign:

@Greg - Did you dig The Didjits? I lived in Kalamazoo, MI in the early 90s and whenever the Didjits came through, shit got unhinged! Poster Children would play a couple times a year in K-zoo too.
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:51am John from Florham Park:

@greg give a listen to DePaul radio they are great too
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:53am Greg R.:

Didgits were great, Poster Children. Yes there were a bunch others that were excellent Hum also travelled a bit. Not a college band but Catfish and Carter Band were a sweaty trio of factory workers from Decatur who would do amazing 3 hour sets of R&B covers.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:55am lukavino:

i never saw the Didjits, but i was lucky enough to see Rick Sims' Gaza Strippers in Normal, IL in the early 2000s.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:55am tim from champaign:

Whoa, Catfish and Carter Band sound pretty rad!
  Wed. 1/16/19 11:55am Mr. Palchepo.:

I lived in Chicago 97-05. The northwestern station used to play free jazz weekday mornings.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:55am Sem:

Thanks for a morning of things I wold not have heard ever otherwise, Scott. See you and all next time 'round.
Avatar Wed. 1/16/19 11:56am tim from champaign:

Awesome show again, Scott! You should continue with the Chicago sounds next week too.

Sem, really? You’re hitting Londinium? Business or leisure?
Avatar Thu. 1/17/19 9:39pm Sam Segal:

Scott, just finished listening to this episode in the archives. Thank you for this incredible tribute to the Chicago creative music scene. The music from that scene is so deep and still somewhat under-appreciated. Been loving your show the past several weeks!
