Customer Reviews

Entertaining and Insighful

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.

John Schaefer rules

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!

Great music show

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. I'm glad they've started offering individual segments as separate downloads again. I can't always listen to the program in its entirety (I teeter on podcast overload as is) and I really like being able to pick and choose.
