Exceptional, current and eclectic music podcast

I have listened to every one of these as well as many several times. The breadth and depth of the music they cover is impressive. No genre is off limits, from metal to jazz. I adore this podcast and it has been the soundtrack to many a night. My only gripe is that it is monthly, and not weekly, and that is a selfish one!
