While you may be doing some spring cleaning on your playlists, we've got a few additions you need to hear! Jim, Greg and some listeners share some buried treasures: under-the-radar albums.


Desert Island Jukebox

Often at the end of Sound Opinions, Jim and Greg add songs to the Desert Island Jukebox. This jukebox is filled with tracks that Jim and Greg would take with them if stranded on a desert island. They‘ve posed this same age-old rock question to many of their guests. Here’s the music that these artists say they can't live without:

  • Buzz Osborne of The Melvins: Judy Garland, Judy at Carnegie Hall
  • Dale Crover of The Melvins: The Rolling Stones, Through the Past, Darkly
  • Steve McDonald of The Melvins: The Jimi Hendrix Experience "If 6 Was Nine"
  • Penelope Spheeris: Japanese Zen Music and Norman Greenbaum "Spirit in the Sky"
  • Iron & Wine: Van Morrison Veedon Fleece
  • Vic Mensa: Stevie Wonder "For Once in My Life"
