WCQ416 The Dalai Lama's Visit to Chicago with Jennifer Beals and Tim Boyd

Host: Amy Matheny

Amy is running solo again, but this time she has news of her fellow co-hosts and what they've been up to.  We'd like to send our thoughts and prayers out to Deb Pearce who lost her father last week.  Amy read a special press release regarding the Dalai Lama coming to Chicago which sparked today's interview with Jennifer Beals and Tim Boyd.  Make sure you get down to see the Gay Idol Semi-Finals on June 4th!
