Fun show

The only thing keeping this from 5 stars is how often the guys get way off subject. It’s a fun show. If you’re a huge music fan you aren’t learning anything new. This is a good time show with funny hosts. I enjoy it.

OUTSTANDING PODCAST

This is one of, if not the best, music podcasts I ever listen to! Fun, entertaining and informative! The hosts are great and know what they’re talking about. You won’t be disappointed!

Addictive Podcast for Music Lovers

I haven’t stopped listening to this podcast since I discovered it a few days ago. The guys research their topics and then they turn it into a story that isn’t fake or scripted. It feels like they are in the same room and the listener feels as though they are with them and part of the conversation. An avid music lover, I am thrilled to find this podcast.
