ANNOUNCER COPY: Coming up…Jim and Greg highlight some under-the-radar music gems you need to hear. And is Madonna lucky with her 13th album release?    

NEWS:

• Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot report on the verdict in the closely followed “Blurred Lines” copyright trial. A jury of eight concluded that songwriters Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams borrowed significantly enough from the 1977 Marvin Gaye hit “Got to Give It Up” to warrant a $7.3 million payout to Gaye's children.

• Albert Maysles, whose 1970 film Gimme Shelter followed the Rolling Stones on their US tour, has died aged 88.

FEATURE:

Jim and Greg share a new crop of musical Buried Treasures. These are under-the-radar gems that you won’t find on the Billboard charts, but that deserve your attention. This batch of treasures includes albums by the Los Angeles-based Cambodian band Dengue Fever and Bay Area duo The Dodos.

REVIEW:
