ANNOUNCER COPY: Coming up… In honor of the World Series, the greatest Grand Slams of the musical variety – four knockout albums in a row. Plus, the emotional post-punk of Detroit band Protomartyr (PRO-to MAR-ter).



As baseball fans celebrate the arrival of the World Series, hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot share their favorite examples of the musical equivalent to Grand Slams – artists who have released four knockout albums in a row. Artists featured include Stevie Wonder, Kanye West, Led Zeppelin, and The Velvet Underground.


Jim and Greg review The Agent Intellect, the 3rd album by Detroit post-punk band Protomartyr. This is the band’s follow-up to its acclaimed 2014 release Under Color of Official Right, which ended on many critics’ Best Of lists. 


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