Say It’s My Number One

Absolute must-listen territory for me with each episode. Great pop music, great discussion, a lot of LOLs and just a blimmin brilliant 50 minutes each fortnight. (Obvs all the boys are great but I am #TeamStu given a shared love for all things PWL).

Btw, previous reviewer: NOBODY calls it a poddy FFS

Flopping Them Out and Putting Them Back

Brilliant music poddy, featuring Stu and Sean. Two flopped singles are presented for review by resident muso Joe, who offers in depth musical analysis that is never preachy or judgemental. There is no room for music snobbery, and the chemistry between the three is undeniable. Laugh out loud funny, insightful and incredibly moreish at just over half an hour per episode. I hope it runs and runs.
