- Daytrotter.com is currently offering five free Andrew Bird songs on their site, including the wonderfully titled "The Giant of Illinois." Check out the sesssions here
- El Producto and the boys over at underground hip-hop stalwart Definitive Jux (the kids just call 'em Def Jux) have teamed up with a shady character named DJ Boo to create a delicious mixtape to add some bump to your Hallowween night. (tracklist after the jump)

Don't knock on our door tonight, we're too lazy and antisocial to answer to trick or treaters, but if you send an email to radiofreechicago(at)gmail.com with "trick or treat" in the subject line, you may mysteriously receive a package in your mailbox containing some eerily good dance versions of some classic underground hits.
