Mostly great

Great for music discovery, and endearing presenters. Personally I find the interviews can be a bit boring, though. I can understand why it's tempting to include guests since they have access to them, but a musicians off-the-cuff comments about their work isn't usually as interesting as the work itself. Maybe it's just me?

Love it

A great way to discover new bands from an amazing label. Emily is a great presenter and interviewer. Very knowledgeable and informative.

Flying Deafman ,

Not enough music

For me the new format is too much talking and not enough music. I loved the old show.
