These are a few of my favorite things.

You have combined my two favorite things music and podcasts. Great musicians covered in the podcast that push your musical journey to strange new places.

Lordy Lordy Berry Gordy!

The LaBenne boys sure know how to pick them songs. I have discovered approximately 4,385 new bands and artists because of them, and I've picked up an equal number of catch-phrases. Keep up the good work!

Best Music Podcast

I've listened to a lot of music podcasts and this is my favorite so far. It gets better with each new episode. For fans of All Songs Considered and KEXP Music That Matters, but with even more interesting song choices. Really do check it out!
