Brian and Hammond do a brilliant job of showcasing a wide variety of musicians and their careers. Love the insight into each artist they cover.

Love the show, but.....

Hey guys! Love the show so far (started with the Styx episode), but I have some factual errors to point up: TW4 doesn't stand for Tradewinds 4, but instead "There Were Four." Next, the brothers in the band were Chuck and John Panozzo (John passed away in 1996) And, finally, Tommy Shaw was born and raised in Montgomery, AL, but was discovered in the Chicago-area and brought in as a replacement for John Curulewski, who left in 1976.

Looking forward to hearing the others I have downloaded! Brian, I love your work with "Film Sack," and the various "Coverville" shows! Keep it going, guys!

Nice way to get to know the music from bands you may know or never knew much about.

Love listening to people who have a genuine passion for their podcast topic and who are just looking to share their passion with others. Brian Ibott got onto my radar via The Morning Stream (a wonderful humorous morning show with a geek culture spin to it) and when he mentioned he was doing this podcast, I had to check it. I am glad I did.

Just finished their Duran Duran episode, of which I am a life long Duranie, and thought they did a solid job brining a helping those who may have had just a casual knowledge of their music get a taste of their very large body of work. Naturally, their top 5 lists was missing things I would have picked, but I really liked how it about thoughtful picks versus just what the majority of people would say. It really sets the tone for this series of being about giving people great knowledge about the music of various artists. It is not about just spitting the same old stuff everyone expects to hear about.

I am really picking with podcasts, so four start is an above average score and something tells these two will be five star worthy in time. They are six episodes in at the time of this positing and I suspect they will just become better and better.

Bottomline, if you are looking to expand your knowledge about music artists from people who are not those snobish critics that refuse to acknowledge anything popular is good and who just pick the most off the wall unknown things to make them seem like real experts, this is great podcast to subscribe to and enjoy.

Keep up the good work Hammond and Brian. I just added them to my monthly Patreon podcasts I support with a small donation account.
