Music fans everywhere have been talking about the first major documentary on one of rock’s most influential bands, The Velvet Underground. Jim and Greg share their thoughts on the film as life-long Velvets fans and scholars. Then, Jim has a conversation with the film’s director Todd Haynes.
Ray BLK is a London-dwelling singer-songwriter who was born in Nigeria. She’s been releasing music for the past five years, but only recently released her debut album, Access Denied. Jim and Greg are both fans, but with different levels of enthusiasm.
Jim and Greg review the third album from producer Sarah Tudzin’s project Illuminati Hotties, Let Me Do One More. They’re impressed by her growth as an artist and producer, though Greg is more excited than Jim.
The guys hear from some listeners.

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!
