Cowboy Carter Beyoncé


Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot review the new album from Beyoncé, “Cowboy Carter.” It's been called her country record, but Jim and Greg point out there is more going on here than just some country songs.


Composer JLIN is a Gary, Indiana native who began her career in the underground footwork community in Chicago. After making music meant for hyperkinetic dancing, JLIN now collaborates with modern dance ensembles- and the likes of Phillip Glass, Kronos Quartet and Björk. Hosts Jim and Greg talk about why JLIN still lives in Gary and how exactly they make their musical compositions.

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!
