With the writers’ strike still on now (though hopefully resolved soon), talk shows are scrambling to find guests. Along with sports figures and musicians, you can now add music scribes to the list.  The Monday night edition of Conan O’Brien’s show will have the Chicago Sun-Times’ Jim DeRogatis and the Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot (both also from the Sound Opinions radio show) on there, which might be a first for the trade (correct…?).  Jim thinks that Mr. Bangs would have been proud but I’m more concerned that the discussion is more about how Radiohead and Timbaland are reshaping the biz than anything about the latest travails of Ms. Spears.
