It’s more then alright Joe
I love the podcast, it’s entertaining, informative and a great listen. I’ve been a Genesis since the 1970s. My first live concert was on the Duke Tour 1980 and I’ve been lucky enough to see them many times since. The last time was Wembley 1987. Keep the pods coming !
Why have I only just discovered this podcast?
As a huge Collins era Genesis fan, it’s so refreshing to hear sensible, jovial discussions about the band I love. The show’s so good I want to take part!
An absolute stonker of a podcast!
Where the sweet Jiminy Cricket has this podcast been hiding? Love the chat about each track from a different persons perspective, revealing hidden gems of info about the band and the ideas behind the tracks themselves. Will definitely be getting multiple listens - well done!
