Easily the largest guide to my music collection!

I look forward to new music Friday’s with anticipation of my childhood Saturday morning cartoons. It’s safe to say that nearly every album I’ve bought for the past 5 years I heard here first! Thank you!

Don’t miss this, music fans!

I almost never miss a new music Friday episode. Bob, Robin, Steven, Ann, and the rest of the gang are a delight. I think my favorite episodes might be their daily and comprehensive SXSW coverage. I love listening to music fans get excited about hearing something new. This podcast is a delight!

Weekly Must Listen

I listen every week for the latest releases and new music from my favorite bands and new artists I’ve never heard of. I often skip the “conversations with” and “guest DJ” episodes unless they’re an artist I already like, but the weekly mixes and Friday releases are essential and I look forward to the new music each week.
