Spriley Hoops ,

A Rochester music lovers must-have

When it comes to this podcast, all I can say is: WOW! The host is very witty and has a lot of great things to say, and the guests he brings on are always very well chosen. You can tell in every podcast that he is genuinely having a great time. Most importantly, the music played and talked about is absolutely AMAZING. Even if you don't live in Rochester and necessarily know the bands and musicians and important people in the scene that get featured, it's worth a listen for the wonderful music we have here. I recommend it wholeheartedly! Thank you Rochester Groovecast!!!
