I have been an “active listener“ for decades without having a term for it. I love picking out separate parts in songs. This podcast feeds that need in me in a fantastic way. Check it out. You will be glad you did! Thanks Kirk!
Exactly what I’ve been looking for
Very approachable for the musically interested though not necessarily musically well-versed. Both the song analyses and q&a’s could be stand alone podcasts, and they go along well together too! Great job Kirk!
I just discovered this a couple days ago but I've listened to several episodes already. I love what I'm learning, I love the songs Kirk picks, and I love how much fun Kirk is obviously having making this. Keep up the good work!
