Sound Opinions is a national weekly music talk radio show and podcast out of Chicago. Hosted by two long-time music critics, the show’s objective is to entertain and educate music fans through discussions about different genres, all-time great albums and new music.


In addition to conversations about music history, hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot interview artists and industry professionals as well as recommend recent under-the-radar music they call “Buried Treasures.”


Sound Opinions is an independent production, distributed nationally by PRX, the Public Radio Exchange.
