This podcast has awakened my passion

I have been trying to send Brice a personal email to thank him sincerely from the bottom of my heart for carrying on this podcast but can’t find an email address so will have to say it here. I listen to old and new podcasts every single day, and my world has come alive thanks to this one.
I fill my day with 100 year old jazz, blues and the rest, and it has inspired me to go out and excavate deep into the annals of history to find so much amazing music and so many wonderful stories.
I really hope that this podcast continues for many years into the future - I always worry that Brice’ll run out of music, but the more I dig, the more assured I feel that this podcast can carry on for many more years as there is just so much music out there.
So thank you Brice, really, for entertaining me, educating me and making me a complete music nerd!
PS More piedmont blues would always go down well!! Or, what I would really love would be more Cab Calloway!! Many, many thanks!!!

Awesome

This is a great podcast because:
-- new episodes arrive every week
-- each episode has a different theme (my favourites are the piedmont blues and train harmonica episodes), many of which are quite novel (eg. multiple recordings of same songs)
-- the music is never too obscure, and at the same time never too familiar/overplayed
-- the presenter is very professional; he is always well researched and knowledgable without talking too much or intruding on the music.

This podcast became one of my favourites almost immediately after subscribing, and has remained one ever since!
