Best music podcast around

I came across this podcast a few days ago on Facebook. I have been listening to it almost non stop since then. I started with the 1 episode and I am working my way up. There is many great groups I never heard about before, or versions of songs I never heard before. Interviews from Groups i missed back in the day but now love. Of course there is groups that you heard about and have been listening to for years but you get the stories behind the music. I highly recommend and If I could give more than 5 gold stars I would.

Informative

I've discovered so many lost songs that could have been top ten singles. I also love how there is a theme for each podcast. It really takes you back to a time and culture that I wasn't around to experience. Thanks Jason!

Jolly Good!

If you're a British Invasion fan you will like this show. If you are a HARDCORE British Invasion fan you will LOVE this show. If you are all of the above but also crave to learn about what was happening in U.K. music in the 60s that was very much under the radar in the states but is explained by a very knowledgeable host here, you will thank God and kiss the ground for this fantastic podcast!
