Benjie Ignacio ,

great no nonsense podcast about rock n roll

Longtime listener since its inception, and of its predecessor podcast, Dad Rock. Thoughtful, spirited conversation, often revelatory and always lighthearted (except when they do an RIP episode, which sadly happens now again). Like cracking a beer at a picnic table with a couple of your music fan friends.

MGinLA ,

Great listen

Love how they talk about awesome music from the past and also bring new music to my ears. Flying Nun Week is one of my favorites, as well as Clash Week. MG

WebChump ,

Snackable daily updates with knowledgeable hosts.

I have been a long time listener. I learn so much about music from these guys in less than 30 minute episodes each day. Never a dull moment.
