Great content, but too segmented

Not sure why they split an episode of their show up into individual segments. It should be posted as one file. They never seem to download together.

Incredible

The most interesting podcast on contemporary music.

Insightful & great

John the host actually listens to music, & asks thoughtful questions. He doesn't just read the publicity sheet.
The in-studio live sessions interest me less than the conversations. I miss the conversations with critics, biographers, & comedians about music history, especially the "THAT was a HIT?" recurring segment.
