"Third coast" likely refers to the idea that the US population tends to be higher on the east and west costs, and that Chicago, lying on the shores of Lake Michigan, is the third largest city in the U.S.
The Third Coast Press is Chicago's Progressive News Source.
Nestled in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast at the corner of Dearborn & Goethe is the Third Coast Cafe.
The Third Coast International Audio Festival was created by Chicago Public Radio.
Reason to boast on the 'Third Coast' by Michael Burnham - 3.29.06: The Windy City is home to the nation’s first skyscraper to achieve a Gold Core & Shell rating from the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) program.
|2.||This American Life|
A radio program played every weekend. Hosted by Ira Glass, this program looks at the amazing life of ordinary people.
"This American Life? Isn't that the show by those hipster know-it-alls who talk about how fascinating ordinary people are?"
|3.||Boers and Bernstein|
The greatest sports talk show on the radio. It is broadcast on Chicago's AM 670 or on the internet. The show features special segments such as "Who ya Crappin'", where listeners call in and call people out for saying dumb stuff, and "Friday Fung", where a topic is chosen and listeners call in to tell strories about the topic. It is on from 2PM to 6PM and is perfect for distracting you from work.
Terry Boers is a hilarious and goofy old man that makes some of the best comments about various public (and pubic) figures I have ever heard. His greatest line was after being confused about a caller's point he said, "I am all turned around like Heath Ledger." He also does outrageous promotions and sometimes you think he has had a few in the studio.
Dan Bernstein is a very smart Duke graduate who is also a pretty funny guy, but with a dryer sense of humor than Terry. He hates Barry Bonds and other raging ass hats who live in a state of denial about what really happens in the sports world.
The producer is Matt Abattacola who is "to drinking what Kenyans are to running." He prefers Captain and Cokes and is sometimes seen downtown walking around as the show is on the air. Great guy who is pretty fun to drink with.
The other day I was listening to Boers and Bernstein while drinking Alice White wine and was laughing my ass off.
A fat disgusting pig of a human who hates music and enjoys destroying great music stations for his own financial gain. Current CEO of Merlin Media and former CEO of Chicago-based Tribune Co. Michaels became public enemy number one in Chicago in June 2011 after it was announced he had purchased alternative radio station Q101 and planned to turn it into a news/talk station. The station's staff was let go on July 14th and the station became a news station later that month.
"My favorite radio format has always been spoken radio"
"As music moves to the ipod, it's time for news radio to move to FM"
-both quotes from Randy Michaels, who is one of the most hated men in Chicago

Poem by Alan Ginsburg
I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,more...
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix,
angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night,
who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat up smoking in the supernatural darkness of cold-water flats floating across the tops of cities contemplating jazz,
who bared their brains to Heaven under the El and saw Mohammedan angels staggering on tenement roofs illuminated
who passed through universities with radiant cool eyes hallucinating Arkansas and Blake-light tragedy among the scholars of war,
who were expelled from the academies for crazy & publishing obscene odes on the windows of the skull,
who cowered in unshaven rooms in underwear, burning their money in wastebaskets and listening to the Terror through the wall,
who got busted in their pubic beards returning through Laredo with a belt of marijuana for New York.
who ate fire in paint hotels or drank turpentine in Paradise Alley, death, or purgatoried their torsos night after night
with dreams, with drugs, with waking nightmares, alcohol and cock and endless balls,
incomparable blind streets of shuddering cloud and lightning in the mind leaping toward poles of Canada & Paterson, illuminating all the motionless world of Time between,
Peyote solidities of halls, backyard green tree cemetery dawns, w...
