Five minutes with the Vocalo bloggers: Jim DeRogatis

SHARE Five minutes with the Vocalo bloggers: Jim DeRogatis

I have a new segment. It’s called ‘Five minutes with the Vocalo bloggers.” The idea is to talk with some of the Vocalo blog stars about topics in their respective areas of interest. Last week, I talked to Steve Dolinsky about the Michelin stars. This week: Jim DeRogatis. Jim talks the Grammys, Kanye West and John Lennon, and I ask Jim about his awesome habit of getting into public fights with musicians.

caught up with Jim after his taping of Sound Opinions. He was gracious enough to sit down and shoot the shit...for five minutes.
