Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network: NPR Illinois’ Statewide (August 3, 2019)

This week, we learn how thousands are kept in Illinois jails awaiting trial simply because they can’t afford bail. The Illinois Supreme Court is expected to make recommendations to improve the situation later this year.

Also, singer-songwriter Tom Irwin used an 1890’s diary of a man who lived in central Illinois to develop his “Sangamon Songs” album. Now, there’s a play based on the man’s life.

That and more on this episode of Statewide.

Revised live broadcast from August 3, 2019 on the Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network, online at heartlandnewsfeed.com, Spreaker and other platforms.
