Very Entertaining!!

This show has the perfect combination of humor, information and overall entertainment! The hosts compliment each other well and it’s very easy to listen to. I have literally learned something every show.

chill and chockful of musical knowledge

Joe and Toby deliver -- great rapport and great stories combined with personal asides (they're both accomplished musicians) to produce mashmix genealogies of classic and not-quite-classic pop tunes. These guys know their stuff--and their preparation is solid. No "aah"s or "umm"s, and only in the rarest moments do they actually leave a thread untied back to the core of the story.
Riffs on Riffs is the real deal.

Superb

This podcast is a “must-listen” for anyone who is starving for some elevated conversation about music. Joe and Toby provide a diverse array of tunes with incredibly interesting background. I particularly appreciate the way they “tie it all together” and take you on a truly creative journey. You’ll love this podcast.
