Hot Drums

Kip McCabe is the drummer for the Chicago indie rock band Dianogah. A few years back, he and his band mates had just come home from touring. They were too lazy to unload their van, so they left their gear in the back for a couple of weeks. It was all locked up in a big wooden box, so they weren't too worried. Sure enough, thieves broke in and stole Kip's drum set. When he called the Chicago police to report the crime, they refused to investigate. Angry, and needing his drums back for gigs, Kip got on the case, and tracked down the thieves. He talks to Dick about doing the cops' job for them, and meeting the guys who stole his stuff, face-to-face.
