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 you'd have a basic "interview/live performance" and that was OK. Now in the past year, the podcase is all just small, often local acts performing and being interviewed. While John might like that and/or they might be less research, they're now MIND NUMBINGLY DULL. Few care about motivation and history of an act you have no history with. New acts are great, but they shouldn't be the focus and they certainly don't need an indepth interview. Bring back the effort you used to put into educating and impressing us fellow music geeks. I'll hang on for now, but it hasn't improved in 2016...yet.
