Loved the Tom Petty Wildflowers and all the Rest conversation.

An update regarding availability of the song “Something Could Happen” (one of quite a few previously unreleased gems): Apple Music has had it available for online streaming as part of the 70 song Super Deluxe version since Friday’s release for its subscribers/trial memberships.

Thanks to this informative podcast. Have a few of the other questions up for future listens. These guys are thoughtful in their discussion and obviously avid listeners of music.

Enjoy Them But....

Really enjoy their lighthearted look at some of my favorite bands like The Replacements. Will say, they should probably avoid reviewing bands like Genesis. I feel like they got in over their heads and were dimisive of a lot of important events that transpired in the band-as well as not being aware of their early history which made for a disappointing result.

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.
