Off the beat and track

This is a very important podcast if you like music without prejudice, hear the influences behind some of your favourite artists, hear music that you may not ever know exists, this maybe, musically, the most important podcast that has been created, given the fact we are fed disposable music, break from conditioning and hear what music means rather than how it sounds

TomDavies81 ,

Fantastic listen!

Very guest brings something completely different and it’s really cool to hear the stories and life events attached to the songs. It often reminds me of albums or songs that I love but have forgotten about and most episodes send me down a music related rabbit hole. Highly recommend for music fans!

AlasdairDickson ,

At last, a music podcast actually about music!

Wonderful song-oriented discussions that yield reflections on so much more. I began with the fascinating Barry Adamson interview and greatly look forward to delving into other episodes.
