Kanye’s tenth studio album, Donda, is named for his late mother and was released after three stadium-sized listening events, the last of which brought out personas non grata DaBaby and Marilyn Manson.
To mark our first anniversary as an independent production we’re sharing songs about breaking free from your past.
I Want To Break Free
Teach The Children
I’m Set Free
Dog Days Are Over
The dub reggae innovator Lee
Scratch Perry died August 29 at age 85. His impact as a performer and producer can be heard in hip-hop, punk and dance music.
We hear feedback from listeners on recent episodes, including the Woodstock 99 documentary, Latin music and buried treasures.

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
