I love this amazing podcast and I have learned so much amazing stuff that I did not know before. I play classical guitar and I am enjoying music so much more after listening to this podcast. D age 10

Strong Songs is fabulous

I love this podcast. Informative and entertaining. I love the smile you can hear in Kirk’s voice and was devastated when I caught up on all the episodes and have to wait for the next one to drop. Thanks Kirk!!

Such a humbling experience…in a good way.

I am a 73 year old singer in cover bands, amongst other things, and just discovered your great series. I am in the Gold Coast Private hospital in Queensland Australia and discovering your podcast Has greatly brightened my time here.
Just starting on early episodes and Thriller, You Can Cal Me Al, and Africa we’re so eyeopening that they expanded my universe…and that is a good thing for me.
I hope I am back home before I get to listen to all episodes, but if not, the days will be filled with great music and learnings.
Thanks so much.
