Ret@65 ,

Thanks Bill

for the hours you spend “auditioning’ tracks for your show. I used to spend hours putting together a mixed tape (cassette) for road trips from my LP’s, it was fun once or twice but you do it over and over again. So thanks for saving me all of that time. Stay healthy.

i ran across this podcast 435 episodes to late. oh, well, plenty of back episodes to catch up on. this is a great place to find new music, and widen my horizons

Such a treasure!

I am late to the party, I just discovered this fantastic podcasts only after Bill had already put 400+ in the can. So I have a lot of listening to do. But I will enjoy every minute of it. Bill curates each episode to perfection. He introduces us to artists we may not have found on our own and opens up the whole genre to us lucky listeners. Highly recommended.
