Barber Shop Show preview: April's Mid-Month Mash Up. What's on your mind?

What stories this month do you think deserved a longer look, needed to be looked at from a race or poverty angle, or were just plain weird?

Do they chronicle the continuing struggles faced by people in public housing, street violence in Chicago, or the police sting that allegedly caught Rep. Derrick Smith red-handed? What about the Lollapalooza lineup and Tupac’s hologram appearing on stage in California?

On this week's Barber Shop Show, we’ll be doing our Mid-Month Mash-Up as journalists and commentators from across the city descend on Carter's Barber Shop in North Lawndale to discuss what local stories they liked, disliked, or made them say WTF?!

We’d like you to help inform the discussion. The survey below allows you to choose, or add, your favorite stories in each category. Then we’ll take this info to Barber Shop Show hosts Richard Steele and Kimbriell Kelly, as well as to our panel of guests.

Tune in to Vocalo 89.5 FM on Friday at noon to hear the show, and leave comments on what stories you’d like to see in the survey, on Facebook, tweet them to @chicagoreporter or call 888-635-1112.
