The best of old time music

Who but Ian could have created a podcast like this? Utterly wonderful and heartfelt tunes from long ago and not-so long ago. Oh, Ian, who is there to take your place?

Totally classy, absolutely classic

Came for the ragtime, stayed for the ukelele, the history lessons, the original music and cool stories, atop the doggy tales and personal touch. Your episodes are the ones that stay the longest in my iDevices before I have to make room for more.
"Come and make your podcast heaven in the Ian Whitcomb show!" (from Ep. 25)

From Berlin to the Rolling Stones and beyond, a history of Pop music.

Download any episode and sit back to enjoy a knowing assessment of popular music through the 20th. Century. Mr. Whitcomb notes that 2011 is the 100th. anniversary of "Alexander's Ragtime Band," a song you've heard even if the title isn't familiar. The composer is of course Irving Berlin. If you find rock an easier entry point, give a listen to one of the "Rock and Roll Royality" episodes. Some fun music and you might learn something besides.
