The 106-year-old West Side Market, a Cleveland landmark, is still full of local shoppers and facinated tourists. But there's some concern over the number of empty stands and problems associated with an aging building. I'm Mike McIntyre. Join us as we discuss the state of the West Side Market, Monday morning at 9 on the Sound of Ideas. Later, Asian-Americans in Northeast Ohio talk about the film Crazy Rich Asians, which features an all-Asian cast.
