You wonder they ask.

I love this show due it’s podcast format. If I miss an organ based program on my local classical radio station, I have to wait a week for a new program. I listen to this on Monday’s and it great to walk in the shoes of the organ community for 30 minutes.

Second, the podcast answers questions that have been in my head. Ex: How do newer organ compositions are created? And today I learned about the job of an organ technician. I love this podcast!!
