Take two nationally respected rock critics, the latest music news, personal commentary, and exclusive interviews and performances, add a huge pile of records old and new, and the result is Sound Opinions — the world's only rock and roll talk show.

Based in Chicago, Sound Opinions is hosted by Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot, two of the finest and best-recognized pop music writers in the nation. For over a decade they were dedicated competitors at Chicago’s two daily newspapers—Jim at the Chicago Sun-Times and Greg at the Chicago Tribune. Today, Jim writes about music for Vocalo.org and teaches criticism at Columbia College in Chicago, the largest and most diverse private arts and media college in the country.

For over three decades, WXPN listeners have depended on "the quiet sounds of Sleepy Hollow" to ease them gently into their weekends. Hosted by Chuck Elliott , Keith Kelleher (Sunday 6-8am) and and Julian Booker (Sunday 8AM-11AM), Sleepy Hollow features a spectrum of artists - from Miles Davis, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell to Chet Baker, Norah Jones and Nick Drake. Musically, Sleepy Hollow blends jazz, folk, instrumental, and contemporary acoustic music where mood and music combine to create a warm and relaxing weekend morning experience.
