Desert Island Jukebox

All year long, Jim and Greg take turns dropping coins in the Desert Island Jukebox, talking about songs and albums they’d need with them if stranded on an island. But now, at the year’s end, they’re gonna take a break and let some of their favorite past guests do the heavy lifting. Hear what music they can’t live without:

  • Lindsey Buckingham: The Beatles, Revolver
  • Trombone Shorty: Louis Armstrong, On the Sunny Side of the Street
  • Fred Armisen: Stereolab, Cybele’s Reverie
  • Trey Parker: Elton John, Indian Sunset and Live in Australia with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
  • Matt Stone: James Brown, There Was a Time
  • Peter Hook: Nico, Chelsea Girl
  • Kelis: Rhye, Open
  • Robert Plant: Low, The Great Destroyer
  • Kerry King of Slayer: Ozzy Ozbourne, Blizzard of Oz
  • Dave Lombardo of Slayer: Amy Winehouse, Back to Black

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!
