Does anyone remember the radio program "Unshackled"? It was syndicated to
many parts of the US. The program was presented by the Pacific Garden Mission
(now on S. State Street) which was located on West Madison. The program
told stories of individuals living in this area whose lives had collapsed. The
premise of the program was that all lives are redeemable. Each story
followed one of these unfortunate people as he came to the Mission and began to
reclaim his life.

I used to listen faithfully. The program lasted into the 90s or so.
