Great fun and informative

Mark Pringle’s infectious enthusiasm and Barney Hoskyns’ droll outlook on a subject they know back to front make it part of my week. And Jasper’s nu-jazz rambles are decent, too.

Great stuff

Despite a distinct lack of Grand Funk Railroad ; ) Rock's Back Pages is one the best music podcasts out there. Long may it continue.

All my yesterdays

As a youngster my high point of the week was the arrival of the Melody Maker and the New Musical Express, bringing news and reviews of my favourite bands and artists and piqueing my interest in new ones yet to be discovered. It was a thrilling time, illuminated by scribes the likes of Nick Kent, Max Bell etc. I also discovered the joys of more focused mags such as Zigzag and Dark Star. Mr Hoskins and co conjure up those great days of music journalism with the RBP podcast and are still introducing me to overlooked gems. It's essential listening for lovers of music from the 60s onward.
