Today on Soundcheck, another installment of our ongoing series Musician In Chief. This time around, Pitchfork's Ryan Schreiber gives his case for why Jay-Z would make a great president. Schreiber also sticks around to give a pick for one band he's looking forward to at this year's CMJ Music Marathon.
Then, singer-songwriter Alex Winston performs live in the Soundcheck studio.
And our own Gretta Cohn talks about the hot pants explosion, both in fashion and in music.
