Episode 64: Sound Check


Listen to Episode 64

Check Check … 1 … 2. 1 … 2.

This week on the podcast we talked about one event that goes down before every show, even though most of us will never hear it: the sound check. And while the main reason for a sound check is technical necessity, the band has on many occasions used this time to do everything from joke around with each other to straight up melt faces. Of course, covering thirty years of sound checks is nearly impossible, even considering that many never reach the public’s ears. But from what is available, Josh, Brian Feller, and I hit you with some of our favorites and discussed the state of sound checks past, present, and future. Did we miss one of your favorites? Let us know in the comments section below.

Thanks for listening. We will be back in two weeks with “March Madness.”

  1. Time to drop a cliche. Long time listener, first time poster. Great production. Enjoy both of the projects, TWOL and Type II. Always looking forward to new episodes dropping. This episode presented a nice angle on those hidden gems that are the sound checks. I agree completely that many offer a commentary to the show itself, although at times not a compliment to the latter. Just a few other examples I always enjoyed was 1997-11-23, Back at the Chicken Shack, 1996-08-13 Spooky, 1998-11-27 Come on>Wipe Out, or even some of the Funk Bitch checks. Anyway, Thought I would shoot out a guess to the sound check trivia. Thanks.
