Fear not, Imke, or anyone else. I see the link to hear the program is now on this page. Look right under the program description at the top of the page.

Thanks to whomever put the links back.

Hi John, I share Dennis Vogel's concern that it is not possible anymore to replay your programs. I really miss this possiblity since I live in Germany and it is the only way I am able to listen to your shows. New Sounds accompanied 14 years of my life in NYC, and I really would be sad if this continued "life-line" to the Big Apple and a really great music program would be cut.
Best, Imke

John, Has something changed on your web page? I don't see any links to replay the program. I know I've seen it in the past but I don't see it now.
