Keep up the great work

Hi Morgan and Oliver. I’m a 62 year old New York Italian who loves your show. Growing up in NY in the 70’s I was privileged to have my choice of great DJ’s and radio stations. I love R&B and soul music the most. Listening to your podcast has opened my ears to music and artists that I was not familiar with and I thank you for that. Your tribute to Aretha was fantastic. Keep up the great work. I’m going to Italy for a two week vacation and I downloaded some of your shows. I’m taking you with me. Take care and ciao. Mike.

Smooth. Eloquent. Uplifting.

Morgan and Oliver have two of the smoothest voices in podcasting. Together with their guests (usualy musicians, scholars or other music industry professionals), they eloquently praise and examine classic albums. I particularly enjoyed their celebrations of Steevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell and Steely Dan. The production quality is fantastic. Song clips are nicely edited into the show, so that listeners can hear a bit of each track being discussed. There is something uplifting about hearing smart and sensitive people talking about the art they love.

Good stuff

I listen to a several album review podcasts. This is definitely the most diverse and the best edited (no two hour discussions full of filler to be found here). The hosts are great. Oliver is like the super-smart older brother who mom always liked best, and Morgan is a master of poetic monologues. She is the one you want to write your obituary. Never miss it!
