It’s an education

Colin Murray masterfully brings together a group of strangers together for each episode and unifies them through their love and appreciation of each other’s musical choices.

Everyone’s musical taste is individual but when you hear the stories and reasons for the guests’ choices you further appreciate so many more songs. Listening to both series has genuinely opened my ear/mind to music I had never heard or never properly appreciated before.

It’s a great format and superbly delivered.

Bring on series 3!

Bloody love it.

This podcast has me smiling, laughing, singing and arguing.
I love the format. The guests always bring something interesting and it has me searching my own inner record collection for my personal answers.
Ultimately I end up thinking “I need to set up a dinner party based around this”.
Love it.
