After a rousing two-day visit by some of Chicago’s finest writers and artists last week, Erasing Boundaries has declared February “Young Chicago Authors Month” on the program. Beginning with Kevin Coval’s appearance last week, the feature continues this week with the first half of a roundtable interview featuring rapper Noname Gypsy, brother/sister hip hop duo April Fools, and Nu-Soul group Milo & Otis.

This week features the music of April Fools and Noname Gypsy, with the music of Milo & Otis to be featured in the coming weeks.
