From WBEZ in Chicago | This American Life Home page for the weekly radio program produced and hosted by Ira Glass... This weeks show profiles former Mayor Harold Washington. Previous broadcasts are available in Real Audio format... About this weeks program: It's the fifteenth anniversary of the death of the greatest politician you probably never heard of -- at least if you live outside Chicago. Someone funny and smart and inspiring and, rarest of all this fall, a Democrat who stayed idealistic and outspoken after he reached high office. The amazing story of Harold Washington, a parable of race and politics in America.
Am currently listening to the broadcast on the Internet from KCRW out of Santa Monica, California.
