Episode 479 - Top Ten Elvis Costello Albums w/Mike Axelsen
There's not one or even 100 ways to describe the musical output of the one and only Elvis Costello. It's impossible to pin the man down, not that anyone would want to. Elvis has given us 31 studio albums and in over 40+ years has likely touched on every single style of music known to humankind, but always with impeccable songwriting and taste. Everyone cool wants to work with EC, and so many all time greats have done it. Over here at ATTT, longtime Pal O' The Pod Mike Axelsen is back in studio to pay tribute to the man and his many mood swings.

Episode 476 - Top Ten Criminal Musicians w/Helen Milner
We'd like to take a moment to thank all of the listeners who stuck with us throughout this turmoil-filled month, and we're talking about the podcast. August has been heavy but also a ton of fun and as Crime Time The Theme Month winds down, we want to remind you all that sometimes the best criminals make the best musicians and vice versa. The people on this week's list are sometimes bad bad people, but they make great music. Super sleuth and sometimes library employee Helen Milner is on the case, helping us count down the greatest and most notorious criminal musicians of all time.Helen's main love is True Crime, and she runs the True Crime All The Time Book Club at the Altadena Public Library.

Episode 474 - Top Ten Songs About Real Life Injustices w/Joe Lavelle
Dewey Cox is right. It's hard to go through day to day life knowing that there are so many injustices happening in the world. Sometimes we want to escape from the endless news cycle of rage-inducing stories of the downtrodden being trod upon by the powers that be. We here at ATTT are solutions-oriented, and we've found a way that you can cut loose and get lost in the music but maintain your eternal wokeness. Top Ten Songs About Real Life Injustices is definitely the heaviest of all of this month's episodes, but our man who can Joe Lavelle was more than up for the challenge of making a show about THAT topic entertaining. Here's part 3 of our 5-part series on crime, punishment, and hopefully someday, justice.Stream this playlist on Spotify:https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3MMzi3ezmtpl6YA3T35fiC?si=625065d6ea0a4799Get thee to alltimetoptenpod.com for everything ATTT:https://alltimetoptenpod.com
Great show, great lists, great host. Each episode is dependent on the guest or guests. Some episodes have way way too much small talk. I just want to hear the list! I don’t mind some banter but I don’t want to listen to your inside jokes or full conversations. The episodes that get to the point are the absolute best. Good stuff!
I just recently found this podcast and I can’t get enough. I absolutely love the format, the banter, the stories, the host and guest hosts, and most of all the music. I have to listen to it with a paper and pen nearby in order to write down the new songs I hear or old songs I have forgotten. I have spent today hunting down the archived episodes because it so good. I work at a job where I have to listen to podcasts in order to pass the time and I am so happy to have found this. Thank you for making my day, every day!!
