On Memorial Day, people all over America will scarf down hot dogs at cookouts, take in the sunshine and the beach, and — of course — sit in crippling, bumper-to-bumper traffic. This weekend, spend your travel time with a special edition of Soundcheck.

Join host John Schaefer as he revisits comedian, actor, and Grammy winning banjo player Steve Martin’s recent visits to the show, including a concert in WNYC's Greene Space, a recent studio session with singer-songwriter Edie Brickell, and a conversation about the storied history of the banjo.
