Alan Leeds is Legendary!

This Alan Leeds trilogy is everything! The man is a walking, talking music history book and the JB stories are classic. Note- People attending shows at the Apollo (where JB recorded his live albums) during mid-day, mid-week hours might be those who worked on the weekends and had a weekday off. Some had to catch a show while the children were in school. Mondays, for example, were for service workers like beauticians, waiters, theatre ushers, etc. These workers provided the services that most people sought on the weekends. For their benefit, places like the Apollo had a variety of hours. Not the best business model after a while but that’s how it was up until the mid-late 1960s.

Great Podcast and I Am a Consistent Listener

I have a been Roots fan for decades. I was thrilled when Questlove/Amir began this podcast and I thoroughly enjoy the dynamics each of the cohosts bring to the show(Laiya, Phonte, Sugar, Boss Bill, and Unpaid Bill). In addition, I am a huge music fan of all genres so I enjoy learning from the guests while they converse about the various aspects of the business. I would only offer one suggestion for Questlove: Quest, please allow your guests to finish their thoughts before interrupting them to ask another question. The guests will be starting to comment or answer the previous question with an interesting point and you will interrupt them. I’m sure it’s from the excitement of them being on the show but your listeners would like for the guest to finish their thoughts. Sometimes you or the guest will circle back to what they were going to say. But, other times, it doesn’t happen and your listeners will have missed a gem of an opportunity to hear another aspect of their career and/or life. Please consider my humble suggestion. Keep up the great work!! Thank you
