On Thursday, Oct. 15, 4-5:30 p.m. Central, please join SPJ President Joanna Talabani for a Q&A with legendary Chicago music journalist Jim DeRogatis.
Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, the year the Beatles arrived in America, Jim DeRogatis began voicing his opinions about rock ’n’ roll shortly thereafter. Together with Greg Kot, Jim co-hosts “Sound Opinions,” the weekly pop-music talk show heard on 150 public radio stations nationwide, as well as via podcast. DeRogatis spent 15 years as the pop-music critic at The Chicago Sun-Times and is the author of ten books about music, including “Soulless: The Case Against R. Kelly.” He is an associate professor of instruction in the Department of English and Creative Writing at Columbia College Chicago.
