Chin Music, Episode 3: I’ve Studiously Avoided Ska

It’s another episode, whether you like it or not. This week’s originally scheduled co-host was struck by COVID-19 (wear a mask, folks!), so filling in is Craig Calcaterra. We talk about the alternate sites, spring training games as background noise, Twitter baseball highlights and more. Later, we are joined by musician/recording engineer Steve Albini, who shares how the pandemic has impacted the music industry, and finish up with a discussion of baseball media in 2021 and family secrets. Taste, and enjoy.
