Barber Shop Show

Coming to you live from Carter's Barbershop in Chicago's North Lawndale neighborhood, The Barber Shop Show brings you a weekly dose of real talk, straight from the shop floor. No punches are pulled and no topic is considered off-topic.

The show is hosted by WBEZ's Richard Steele (and produced by Ayana Contreras). It is produced in collaboration with The Chicago Reporter.

The Barber Shop Show airs every Friday at 12pm CST on Vocalo.org, 90.7 FM, and 89.5 FM.

The show also rebroadcasts on Saturdays at Noon on Vocalo, and on Vocalo's sister station,
WBEZ 91.5 FM on Sundays at 3pm.

The Barber Shop Show is brought to you thanks to the generous support of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the McCormick Foundation.

Every month, we like to check-in with our favorite local journalists and bloggers for a segment

called, “Shop Talk.”

We get their perspectives on the stories of the day. Then, they tell us about developments in local news that they liked, and ones they disliked. Lastly, they tell us those moments that made them go WTF!?!

Joining us today are Maria Zamudio of the Chicago Reporter and Don Hall of WBEZ. Our Guest Host is Melanie Coffee of the Chicago Reporter.

Here’s just one of the [WTF?!] stories we’ve got an eye on —

A Brooklyn drug dealer is helping victims of Hurricane Sandy. He’s donated about two days’ proceeds from selling weed…about $700….to help people in the hard hit Rockaway section of Queens!

Join us live at Carter’s - 3622 W Cermak Road, or follow the conversation online.
