Have you ever listened to Sound Opinions? It's a colorful, informative radio show done by music critics Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis.
On the latest edition of Sound Opinions, Greg and Jim took a virtual tour through the music scenes of Baltimore, Memphis and Portland.
In the Baltimore segment, they speak to some schmuck named Sam Sessa, who writes about music for some rag or another. I think he might work at a radio station too ...
While Sam sounds nervous, the music featured on the segment is a sampling of Baltimore standouts, from Beach House and Dan Deacon to Wye Oak, Darkroom Productions and J. Roddy Walston and the Business.
You can download or stream this episode of Sound Opinions here. The Baltimore segment starts at 8:45 and ends around 18:30. That's almost 10 minutes devoted to Baltimore. Nice!
If you want to catch Sound Opinions, WTMD airs it Sundays at 10 p.m.
