It's just OK

Could be a lot better. I start out the podcast not knowing some of the artists or their style then listen to them tell me how they got into music. Would be nice if you started the podcast with one of their songs then went into interview, that way I could get a better feeling of the artists music. Otherwise the interviews are good. Listen to the guys on WNCW interview a bluegrass artist, they have the format you need.
