When we was fab

Just started listening to this podcast- it’s ace!

Loving hearing Canadian musicians’ opinions about Beatles music and solo projects.

Also we get a snippet of information about the guest presenters, and this is a fascinating insight into other musicians’ ideas.

Positive, insightful and knowledgeable; a great addition to the plethora of Beatles podcasts without any of the arrogance which dogs some of the others. Recommended.

Great music knowledge

This has been a fun series to hear even as a non Canadian. The guests are passionate about their album choice and Paul Romanuk has such in-depth knowledge to add to the discussions. Top job everyone.

Mark it as fab!

Wonderful podcast with knowledgable host Paul Romanuk and a selection of engaging guests. Really made me re-listen to some of the best music ever made.
