Thick listening? Mumbo jumbo. Digital is just a means of recording and playing back. You can have as much nouse as youbwant - just like analog. It all depends on what you want to filter out. We thinknof movies like Citizen Kane and Casablanca as all time greats and fans drone on and on about them being in black and white -- like that makes the movie better. They weren't filmed in black and white because the director wanted to evoke a mood. They were filmed in black and white because that's all that was available. Same thing with analog.

Jim and Greg sort out the cool from the crap with their "buy it, burn it, trash it" review system. It's great for commuting because it mixes their review with playing the actual songs or albums they review. If you are looking to expand your musical experience and hear reviews of popular music, deep cuts, and music news...this is a must have.

I have not listened the last couple of shows, but I have been a big fan of this radio show since started here in Chicago (7 years ago, I think, but not positive). I don't always agree with them, but Jim and Greg are really on the ball. For the novice or the hard-core music fanatic, this is a show that everyone can listen to and still feel like they're part of the conversation. If you're not in Chicago and can't listen to them on the radio, get the podcast. You'll be happy you did.
