Best Music Podcast Period

I am a hard rock fan, specifically 70s music and subscribe to a number of really good related podcasts but in my opinion, Three Sides is the best of the bunch, Strongly recommend it to any one who loves classic rock music, not just KISS, so check it out!

interviews are okay

They tend to get some good interviews, which is suprising, based on the poor quality of the audio and the general sloppyness of the show. Some of the interviews are very informative. The hosts spend way too much time complaining about people on facebook and giggling at their own jokes.

Improbi ,

Not just for the uber Kiss fan.

Whether they are cheerleading or critical, one thing is for sure these guys are above all Kiss fans. Discussing every aspect of the band to interviewing people who are connected to the band at various levels keeps this usually moderate fan coming back for more.
