Josh Kantor’s Seventh Inning Stretch

Boston Red Sox organist Josh Kantor gained a loyal following by playing pop songs by request during baseball games. When the baseball season missed opening day, Kantor started a daily livestream where he recreated that experience as best he could.


Greg pays tribute to the late Bill Withers by playing a song from "Live At Carnegie Hall."

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!
