The Best Ever Music Podcast

I love love love the music that LMG chooses. I wish he had continued these podcast. I play them over and over.

State of the art...

This is hands down the best music podcast that i subscribe to, for any genre. Incredibly good taste in modern R&B that has not forgotten it's soul roots.

Best Podcast To Lift Writer's Block

Listening to the music on this podcast was just as good as working on a creative writing prompt. It's something about a mixbag of tunes that can set a fire to my fingers and get the old brain shooting out ideas on the doc. Emily King's "Out of The Clouds" was a standout for me. I know I will return to Andra Day to hear her sing, "Not Today". It was so good to hear Bilal do "I Really Don't Care" that I had to stop and bask in this voice. Lalah Hathaway, Kwabs, Jose James were soft and tender muses too. I will revisit this podcast every time I need to stir up things. I could probably write prose and poetry just listening to this wonderful podcast that does what I need most. Dedicate it's time to soulful ballads.
