Shawn Campbell writesCheck out our great limited edition thank-you gifts for fall 2019!

We're so appreciative of your support for our work here at CHIRP! During our fall fundraising drive, from September 9-20, we're giving you some cool opportunities to score limited-edition thank-you gifts when you gift at different levels.

For example...

Give $60 or become a $5 monthly sustaining member, and you'll get this tear-shaped over-the-shoulder backpack with the CHIRP logo:

Become a CHIRP member with a $120 gift or a $10 montly sustaining level gift, and get this t-shirt, designed by local artist Damien James, plus the CHIRP Membercard!

Or give $240 or become a $20 monthly sustainer and you'll get these comfy pajama pants along with the Membercard!

Give $180 (or $15/mo.) for the t-shirt/backpack/Membercard package, or give $365 ($33.33/mo.) to get every one of these items!

Thanks so much for supporting independent community radio! We couldn't do what we do without you!

Bobby Evers writesSame Time, Next Year: My 12 Years of Going To Pitchfork (Part 3)

written by Bobby Evers

On the third day of Pitchfork, my true love gave to me: dancing with my friends, no brief evacuation and no warning of a heat advisory.

In the early afternoon of the Sunday of Pitchfork 2019, I got off the red line at Jackson to transfer to the pink line. At this particular CTA station, the escalator had stopped working and was blocked off, with a sign that said “We’re restoring your escalator!” Every time I see this, of course, I am reminded of the Mitch Hedberg "sorry for the convenience" joke.
