    REMASTERED: Mae West - Way Out West

    Sometimes, after releasing episodes of Bizarre Albums, new information comes my way about some of these albums and I want to pass that on to you as well. But as usual, I’m not here to make fun of them, I’m here to celebrate them and tell their story. This is Bizarre Albums, REMASTERED.

    This is the story of Mae West's Way Out West, from 1966...now with additional material.

A music geek’s dream

Love love love this podcast. As a big music person and a lover of the unusual, offbeat, odd or unlikely, this scratches a unique itch!

You Don’t Need to be a Record Store Geek

All music lovers should give “Bizarre Albums” a listen. The focus is on the odd, but each episode includes a lot of general music history - well researched, interesting, and fun. My favorite podcast!

Tony puts out such a good show, week after week. The research is thorough, insights smart and the humor and drops are spot on. The best podcast you haven’t listened to yet. 👍
