In honor of Soul Week at the Reader I went to Northwestern University and listened to Mick Dumke sing some of his favorite soul songs of all time.

At one point Mick got so excited he started break dancing.

Well, that’s not entirely true. Mick didn’t sing or dance. He did run through several of his favorites as we headed over to the school. Though that’s not really the reason I’m writing this bit. Just wanted to get in on “Variations on a Theme” before it ended.

No, Mick and I went to Northwestern to speak to a political science class taught by Don Gordon, the Rogers Park activist who ran for 49th ward alderman in 2007.
