CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on October 15th, 2020, reviewing the new rock documentary “Harry Chapin: When in Doubt, Do Something,” and a preview of the 56th Chicago International Film Festival.

Harry Chapin was more than his songs “Cats in the Cradle,” “Taxi” and his tragic 1981 death in an automobile accident. It turns out he was an extreme activist regarding world hunger, even soliciting Senator Pat Leahy and Jimmy Carter. It was his life’s work, superseding his music, family and time, so he had a John Brown-type fervor about the issue. Family and friends (including Billy Joel, Pat Benatar and Bob Geldolf) looked back nearly 40 years after his death.
