... this is a perfect place to find it. Guests are often musicians or groups that are just under the popular radar but deserve more love and attention.

Just read e-mail from WNYC’s new CEO, reversing the decision to cancel the show! Good things are still possible - Schafer is a wizard we’d be poorer without.

for fans of a large variety of alternative music, these are nice live music sessions mixed with live interviews. just like with other US public radio shows - such as All Songs Considered and Tiny Desk Concert - this is often a good way to discover new music.

The most interesting podcast on contemporary music.

John the host actually listens to music, & asks thoughtful questions. He doesn't just read the publicity sheet. The in-studio live sessions interest me less than the conversations. I miss the conversations with critics, biographers, & comedians about music history, especially the...Read full review »

Thanks for the Jherek Bischoff podcast - it was great to hear you guys talking, I have seen Jherek perform live in Western Australia & Tasmania, where I bought a copy of Composed from him after the show. It's one of my favourite albums now and I'm just getting into listening to...Read full review »

Since I'm not in NYC, I don't get to hear the whole show I assume, just the segment that week they choose to upload. That said, a couple years ago when I started listening, it was fascinating. Most of the better shows were like great lectures on genre, history, theory, etc. Sometimes...Read full review »

I love this podcast!!! A huge and eclectic range of artists, it’s been fantastic to introduce me to music unlikely to be heard in more genre specific channels.

This is a great show and John Schaefer is an excellent host. It's engaging and entertaining. It does not just explore a revolving door of artists, it explores music as an idea. One of my favorite things to do is take a heavy dose of an OTC sleep aid and walk around my neighborhood at night...Read full review »

Soundcheck’s John Schaefer is one of the best interviewers in the business.

Often eclectic; always interesting; always an adventure. I've been introduced to a lot of new music over the years.

Love this show.  Virtually every aspect of music is covered, always in an engaging, thoughtful way.  If you love music, this is well worth the time to check out on a regular basis.  Thanks for doing such a great job, guys!

I'm a big fan of Soundcheck. The host John Schaefer is clearly knowledgeable on the subject of music but is also very relaxed and friendly. I've discovered some cool bands listening to this program. The show covers a broad spectrum of music too-I loved the segment about accordions....Read full review »

This is the best radio program about music I've ever seen. I like their talk shows about pop music, but there's more. Live performances and ...Read full review »

Is there a more knowledgeable host than John Schaefer on any music podcast anywhere? Between this and Sound Opinions (from WBEZ), I discover great music, learn more about music I already knew, and delve into realms that I never would have known about. Highly recommended. Not every segment is...Read full review »

Not sure why they split an episode of their show up into individual segments. It should be posted as one file. They never seem to download together.

I used to listen to his New Sounds show on WNYC back in the early 80s when I was a law student in NYC. He's really knowledgeable, never egotistical-sounding. I learned an awful lot of great new music composers in those days!Read full review »

After first discovering Soundcheck through podcasting, I have been a reguler listener. John Schaefer is knowledgeable, fun and very good in his conversations. You get new perspectives and it keeps you up to speed on the US music scene. Recommended!

WNYC's Souncheck is a thoughtful and entertaining show that I have routinely downloaded for months. I'm so glad to see that it's available via iTunes so I can listen to it on-the-go.Read full review »
