GOOD READ

For Chicago Reader, Leor Galil surveys all 50 years of the paper's coverage and reports back:

"Genres are defined as much by the communities who incubate them as by their sounds, and the Reader has long offered critics the space to drill down into the meaning and limitations of such designations."

Thanks for listening!

—Dave & Team Hype Machine
