The best podcast ever!
I’ve listened to every episode. It is marvellous: the history, the music, and Brice! It is the perfect podcast to put on while doing something else: cooking, sewing, etc. I love having it in the background. At Christmas and Halloween, I re-upload all the old episodes with those themes and the house is full of fun music. Thank you Brice for this wonderful piece of history. Your podcast will live on and share information about music from here on... what a fantastic contribution to the world! 🎼🎧🎺🎸🎻
Thank you Brice..Brightens up my day.?
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!!!
