NEWS:

• Kid Rock has announced that he will be taking a “pay cut” in order to sell tickets to his summer concerts for a mere $20. However, he and promoter Live Nation are also conducting an experiment in market-driven pricing and have held back a number of seats to sell as “Platinum Tickets.”

FEATURE:

Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot remember a friend and critical hero: Roger Ebert. Jim worked with Ebert at the Chicago Sun-Times, and Greg worked with Gene Siskel at the Chicago Tribune. Their show was a model for Sound Opinions in many ways. In 2006, the three critics sat down to talk music movies and Ebert's own rock 'n' roll past, which includes a remarkable meeting with The Sex Pistols. This ended up being one of Ebert’s last recorded interviews before losing his ability to speak. 

REVIEW:

Jim and Greg review Mosquito, the 4th album by the New York trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

DESERT ISLAND JUKEBOX:

Jim remembers music engineer Andy Johns who worked on classic albums by Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Van Halen and more. He chooses to add the song “See No Evil” from Television’s 1977 landmark debut Marquee Moon.
