A story from cab-driving days. Written and read by Dmitry Samarov, with improvised music by Bill MacKay (guitar), Daniel Thatcher (bass), and Charles Rumback (drums). Recorded up on Frogg Mountain in Chicago, Illinois by John Vernon Forbes in 2013.
Photographer/historian Paul Petraitis and filmmaker John McNaughton talk about shooting footage of Old Fashioned Days in the Roseland neighborhood of Chicago in 1970. White flight, rock-n-roll, and growing up in Chicago in the '60s are discussed.
Don De Grazia and Dmitry Samarov convene at the cocktail lounge of a movie theater, situated within a deadmall which just won't die, to discuss Paul Schrader's new film. Also, whether the axe-throwing concern recently opened in the basement of the mall will save it from the wrecking ball.
