A Smart Look at a dynamic Industry

Great guests discussing their expertise, present company excepted. Consistent quality of discussion and Jim doesn't shy away from the tough topics. Very much appreciated. Keep it up.

Vinyl Rules!

This is such an awesome podcast. I liked the episode with Tim Bierman from Pear Jam Ten Club. Jim is so funny. Keep up the good work!

Love it.

As a musician that writes, records and releases his own music we're all just trying to figure out how we all fit in and where we're going to get a few ears and even fewer dollars. This podcast has given me a lot of good ideas and I look forward to each new episode.
