I appeared on the WBEZ program The Afternoon Shift on May 27, 2014, and talked with host Niala Boodhoo about my new album of Chicago-inspired songs titled “Rahm Songs.”
Local musician rehashes old lyrics for ‘Rahm Songs’
Logan Square songwriter Andrew Francis first started writing protest songs directed against our previous mayor. But as it turns out, Francis finds his songs are still particularly relevant today. He wrote “CTA Blues” back in 2006, and with very few tweaks he was able to rehash the song for his mini-album, ‘Rahm Songs.’ He joins us in studio to talk about the inspirations for his music and lyrics, and his experience reworking his old songs.
