Via MediaBistro: On Tuesday afternoon, we were lucky enough to catch a live performance of Soundcheck with John Schaefer at WNYC's new downtown performance space, The Greene Space. The show -- featuring a discussion between the host, Santi "Santigold" White, Lou Reed, and Mary Rowell from the string quartet Ethel -- and performances from the latter two artists -- was the first live broadcast in the room's history. It kicked off a 10-day festival celebrating the new venue, which got a nice write-up in The New York Times last week. Additional live radio shows in the near future include The Brian Lehrer Show (with guest Paul Krugman) and The Leonard Lopate Show.
