Jazz in Glen Ellyn

A shout-out to Glen Ellyn, Illinois, the so-called bucolic bedroom community west of Chicago where I grew up, had crushes on the neighborhood boys (Chucker, Eddie, Gordie, and Jimmy), went to grade school and junior high and high school (at Glenbard West), and got confirmed as a Lutheran (Missouri Synod, no less). Who knew it would become a jazz mecca, home to Chicago's top jazz radio station (public radio WDCB-FM 90.9) and an annual jazz festival?
