Sound Opinions Takes First Place!

It turns out USA Today’s Whitney Matheson has an awfully good ear for great radio. Last week she rated Sound Opinions as her #1 favorite music podcast. Thanks Whitney!

We’d like to congratulate All Songs Considered who came in 2nd, and our pubradio friends at KEXP and WNYC, also in the top ten. And a clink to Chicago Public Radio, Sound Opinions hosts Jim DeRegatis and Greg Kot, and producers Robin Linn and Jason Saldanha!

Check out Sound Opinions on PRX, subscribe to the podcast, then please! Tell your local station all about it.

Sound Opinions move to PRX; Current takes a look

Sound Opinions in Current

Current takes a look at Sound Opinions move from American Public Media to PRX. The switchover is about to take place on July 1, and we are all ready to rock!
