Sound Opinions: Buried Treasures

Aug 3, 2017

ANNOUNCER COPY: Coming up on Sound Opinions… Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot dig out some buried treasures – albums not yet in the mainstream but deserve some more attention. Plus, an in-depth look at the history of the wah-wah pedal.



Jim and Greg expand your summer playlist by sharing some of their previously unearthed buried treasures - obscure albums by relatively unknown artists. Featured artists include Capitalist Kids, Chicano Batman and Gothic Tropic.


The hosts chat with experts from the Chicago Music Exchange about the significance of the wah-wah pedal, a device used to manipulate sound mainly on guitars. The effects can be heard on Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child” and The Temptations’ “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.”


At the end of the show we hear comments from listeners.
