Richard Milne: Music all the time

Richard Milne has been working at WXRT in Chicago since 1976, where he also hosts Local Anesthetic. He talks about how he makes decisions to air bands' music on the show; why he prefers CDs; his relationship to the Smashing Pumpkins; why Lou Reed was the most exciting on-air interview he's ever done; what he thinks of digital vs vinyl; his first radio job in WDEK in DeKalb, Illinois; how WXRT DJs can choose their own music; how he developed his business, Rank Entertainment; what makes WXRT an atypical music station and special place to work, and more.
