John Prine’s Self-Titled Debut


In an in-depth conversation with author Erin Osmon, hosts Jim and Greg tell the story of John Prine going from being a mailman in the Chicago area, to being one of the most celebrated songwriters in the country.


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!
