On The Good Music Show with Scott and Odie, you'll be immersed in a quintessential college radio show, even if you don't live within a block of a university's antenna. Indie rock and underground sounds past, present and future. You might hear it first and or last, on The Good Music Show.  

Hey, the Good Music Show has a Facebook page!


Scott Schaefer, host of Sideshow and co-host of The Good Music Show, has been the lead singer for several stalwart Chicago indie rock outfits and has also blazed a trail through the cover tune circuit with his numerous acoustic duos. In addition to performing and recording, Scott also holds down various DJ residencies around town, from venues well-known to the forever unknown. Alongside his live musical endeavors, he has also carved a niche for himself on the industry side of the Chicago music scene, first as head of operations for the venerable Checkered Past Records label, and most recently as the label manager for local indie powerhouse Bloodshot Records. With the little free time he has left, he hosts Chicago's longest-running weekly open mic competition at Uncommon Ground. Scott is enveloped in music, and he wouldn't have it any other way.

Odie Schaefer, co-host of The Good Music Show, is also but not limited to: a Halloween/haunted house enthusiast; a roller coaster fanatic; and a vinyl junkie. Odie has been in and around the music scene pretty much all of his life: he formed his first band at age 9, and recorded his first album while still in junior high school. With his musical tastes crossing many genres you're never quite sure what will be coming through your speakers ... hopefully at high volume.
