Very Insightful and Hugely Enjoyable

A great podcast! Alex is a natural at putting his guests at ease and what follows is a very insightful conversation about pieces of music - a few I had not heard of and also a few I had, but now understand more about.

A worthwhile listen! Keep up the great work Alex!
