JBroMusic ,

Fantastic podcast!

Greg does such great interviews and I’m hoping the show returns after a fairly long hiatus. I love hearing conversations with the people who were associated with Shrapnel Records. Greg job, Greg and I’m looking forward to your upcoming documentary!

Keep doing what you are doing!
