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.

The Massive Heid ,

Let’s the guest talk

I know Stu (not personally) from the Distraction Pieces and saw Fran Healy posting about it. First time listening to it and really enjoyed it. I listen to a lot of podcasts and what you find is the host talks more that the guest and it becomes off putting! This is not the case and Stu let the conversation flow. Off to search the back catalogue now!
