Songs About Time

Ready to rock around the clock? This week, Jim and Greg play their favorite Songs About Time.


Ask the Critics Pt. 2


Jim and Greg continue answering listener questions this week! Listen to part one here.

  • Kim: "Have you ever been in a major fight over a musical disagreement? (If yes, DETAILS!)"
  • Daniel Bass: "How do you feel that being in Chicago, rather than music industry hubs like New York, LA or Nashville, affects the show."
  • Raquel: "Could you please talk about T.V. series and their soundtracks? Not the old ones, but what we're currently viewing. How does pop music contribute to the narrative, etc.?"
  • Dan LoPresti: "What are the origins of the Eno bell? Explain the Brian Eno ding. I know Eno at a general level. Is the ding a name-dropping thing?"
  • Ben Gart: "Have you ever talked about your own adventures in creating and performing music?"
