Suggestions....

Love the show. Inquisitive, thoughtful and respectful questions. Thanks for not wasting time with idle banter. Would love to hear interviews with Andy Partridge, Nick Lowe, Paddy McAloon.

The Best

You guys are the best at this. I really enjoy every one of your eps, even the ones with the artists I’m not into. Your recent chat with Matty and George from the 1975 was testament to that. You just let them chat and take over and didn’t feel the need to talk over them. Keep up the fantastic work. It shows that you’ve been doing it for over a decade.
