The B-Side has been in business since 1985 and in this location since 1989. Browsing is relaxing, thanks to the sweet sounds of jazz that stream through the air. An old-fashioned Victrola greets you at the door and black and white photos of musical legends adorn the walls. There are more than 18,000 albums and 1,200 compact discs in the inventory. Store owner Leonard Bukowski breaks into conversation with many of his customers. Behind the counter you'll find 'The Jazz Doctor' (Sterling Watson) and his colleague, 'The Jazz Intern' (Bob Martin). They have a radio show on WHPK-FM (88.5), based at the University of Chicago.
