Fresh Air!

This podcast is a breath of fresh air. Every time I listen, my spirits are lifted and I learn a lot! A great balance of music and background for each song - not too much, but really informative. I love it!

Like traveling through time

I’ve been loyally listening at least 10 years and am still impressed by his passion and breadth of knowledge. All the music is before my time, but it has always somehow resonated with me. I like to imagine walking into a store or diner of the era and hearing it playing—I guess it IS timeless. Thank you Thank you Thank you!
