Workin' On A World Iris DeMent

Iris DeMent Workin on a World

Iris DeMent has been fairly synonymous with American folk music since she made her debut in the early 1990s. Her album of duets with John Prine is beloved, but her latest album, Workin’ On A World has Jim and Greg split.

Screaming Females first drew critical acclaim for their guitar power trio heroics under the leadership of a teenaged Marissa Paternoster. On their eighth album, Desire Pathway, the band's essence is unchanged, though their technical craftsmanship has grown.

Rose Marshack & Rick Valentin

Poster Children formed in 1987 at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and its two core members Rose Marshack and Rick Valentin are still on a college campus- now as professors at Illinois State University. Even after signing to a major label in the alternative music boom, Poster Children have never called it quits and now Marshack's memoir “Play Like A Man” tells the band's story.

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!
