Thursday on Lake Effect: Sherman Park Unrest, 'The Wizard of Oz' Anniversary, Connla

Thursday on Lake Effect

We remember the third anniversary of the Sherman Park protests with Ron Smith of the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service. Then, film contributor Ryan Jay joins us to talk about The Wizard of Oz as the film celebrates its 80th anniversary. Plus, what it feels like for one band to play the world’s largest celebration of Irish music for the first time.
