Great podcast.

For the Dave Pirner episode. Soul Asylum wasn’t on A&M when they put out Grave Dancers Union. They had been dropped and picked up my major label Colombia at that time.

Best podcast each week!

I can’t believe I haven’t rated this yet. Sorry Chris and Chris. I have always been a massive Less Than Jake fan and now I find myself totally enthralled with the world of songwriting thanks to Chris and his inquisitive detail driven interviews. It’s the first episode I listen to every Monday when it drops. Well done and rock on!

Great Music Podcast

Excellent podcast breaking down a different song each week in extreme detail. It’s great hearing all the stories behind the songs and getting that behind the scenes look into what went into making a hit. It’s amazing to someone who is not in the music industry how a song is actually out together from concept to release. Keep up the great work guys!
