Alan Cross is a music-history god!

I lived in Buffalo, NY during the 90’s and early 00’s and never missed this show on Sunday nights when it aired on Toronto’s 102.1 CFNY. When I moved out to the west coast after college, I felt an immediate void! Until I found the streamable shows on the CFNY website, which disappeared shortly after I discovered them. I can’t tell you how THRILLED I am that these are now in the form of podcasts. Alan Cross is a music-history god and has a delivery that rivals even the most accomplished musicians when masterfully weaving these tales. The topics range from the history of individual bands to cult music phenomena to technological advancement in music. You will not be disappointed.

Hits--but big misses

While this podcast has good information, glaring omissions (discussing Björk & mot mentioning Gling Glo?) and embarassing mispronounciations (Bauhaus) ultimately make it feel like Wikipedia read aloud.
