Customer ReviewsSee All
Started to listen to this podcast while running. I love the passion and knowledge displayed here. Our musical interests are similar so this is very interesting. It opens my eyes to different views on albums and songs. MAkes me go back and relisten with a different, refreshing perspective. I love when there are multiple guests so I can hear the sometimes differing opinions. Ray's perspective is great due to being a musician. He has insights I would never know or hear, but not too technical. Rock on!
Like sitting with buddies taking tunes
I made my here via Stateofamorica to listen to your Crowes reviews, stayed for the rest of the party. I love the technical insight as well as the nostalgia. Don’t always agree, but always enjoy! Great pod!! - JD
I love listing to the show, and perhaps picking up a few insights into some of my favorite albums and artists.
Keep up the good work.
