Son of Chicago crime family informs on his father

    Frank Calabrese helped the FBI put his father in jail for life. Dave Davies talked to Calabrese as part of his fill-in duties on NPR’s Fresh Air.

    You can catch Dave’s interview with Calabrese today at 3 and 7p.m. You should also check in with Dave on his blog, Off Mic, where he talks about the hour-long program and his thoughts on Calabrese.

    Dave writes: “There were moments in the interview when I could hear the emotion in Calabrese’s voice, and when we finished I asked if it took something out of him to tell the story every time.”
