Hello! For my day job, I host and produce Looped In: Chicago, a podcast for WBBM Newsradio. And this week, they allowed me to make an episode all about the city's ties, past and present, to the record industry. So while it's different from your typical Vinyl Emergency episode, I hope you'll find this one to be an equally engaging listen, with guests including Evan Weiss of Into It. Over It., Smashed Plastic Record Pressing co-owner Steve Polutnik, Chicago Reader columnist Steve Krakow and music history TikTok sensation Patrick Hicks. Subscribe to Looped In: Chicago wherever you get podcasts, and new VE episodes will come your way soon.

This is an encore presentation of a previous episode, originally airing in December 2020.


On today's show, keyboardist Derry deBorja (of Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit) talks about the musical influence of his older brother, his time as a member of Son Volt, how experimenting with a modular synth has changed how he views composition, and the 400 Unit's relationship with David Letterman. Visit jasonisbell.com for updates, and follow Derry on Instagram, @tin_pony.
