Christmas Spectacular 2008

It's the Sound Opinions Christmas Spectacular! Every year Jim and Greg hand the show's reigns over to the official Sound Opinions holiday music curator, Andy Cirzan (aka DJ Lo-Fi). By day, Cirzan is the Vice President of Concerts at Jam Productions, the largest independent concert promoter in the country. But by night, Cirzan scours the earth to find rare, and often times wacky, holiday music to add to his collection. This year is no exception.

Dear 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!
