This week’s show is a cavalcade of amazing-ness. Duncan and Richard talk to Joseph Ketner II, Chief Curator at the Milwaukee Art Museum where we ask the question “did Francis Bacon simply need a hug?”. Next, there is an excerpt from a lecture by Christopher Kennedy, President, Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc., on the future of the Art Fair here in Chicago which is not to be missed as we move ever closer to the 2007 fair and away from the 2006 debacle. Christian Kuras guest stars in the expanded intro and Amanda is back from her travels to say all sorts of funny and possibly offensive things!

Be sure to buy your Pitchfork Festival tickets! Sonic Youth is performing Daydream Nation in its entirety. Hot damn.

Holy Guacamole the new Chicago Reader art listings (if you can even call them that) suck like space. For shame Reader, for shame. This is one of the biggest slaps to the art community in some time. Rise up!!!

Lastly, PLEASE vote in this week’s poll as we need your input on what might be changes to the format of the show. www.badatsports.com

Planned for next week, artist and author David Robbins!!!

In this episode Bad at Sports welcomes guest reviewers: Boston up-and-comer Liz Nofziger and Columbia College Chicago’s Neysa Page-Lieberman. They join Bad at Sports locals Terri Griffith, Serena Worthington, Joanna Topor, and Duncan MacKenzie as we shake up and shake down shows in the West Loop. Tune in as they struggle with Gescheidle’s two new shows–Drew Beattie and Chris Verene–whose name Duncan butchers repeatedly; GARDENFresh’s first show in their new digs; and Gallery 40000’s two new offerings, Thomas Rapai and Amy Vogel. All that, and Brian Andrews talks politics and art!

ALSO A BRAND NEW CONTEST: The first Bad at Sports Essay Contest is announced in the outro this week. We need you to write a speculative essay of 100 words or less on why Edward Lifson dislikes us. These can be as speculative and fictitious as possible. The winner will have their essay read on the air by Book Guru Terry Griffith!!!

On that note don’t forget to e-mail Hello Beautiful and tell them about our project!!! HelloBeautiful@ChicagoPublicRadio.org
