I'm intrigued!

This is a SUPER ambitious show concept and I can't wait to see where it goes!

A Refreshing New Kind of Show

This is an exceptionally well produced show. In an era of podcasts that are nothing more than two people talking to each other, Flasback to Never challenges the medium and pushes it into exciting territory.

It's refreshing to hear so many different elements in this show. First, there are the DJs who have witty banter and whole character arcs throughout the season. Then there are the diffent kinds of commercials and newscasts.

And, of course, there is the music. Even though each song is original, I found myself time and time again thinking I was listening to music from the early sixties. The creators have faithfully recreated sounds from the past while updating the lyrics to show the problems and darker side from tunes from that era.

This is the more professional sounding podcast I've ever heard and I can't believe it was made independently by two people. The first season really blew me away. I can't wait to hear was season two has in store.

What radio used to be... what it should still be!

There’s so much to love about this podcast. Eagerly awaiting the next episode!
