Highly recommend this podcast for any and all music enthusiasts

Love this podcast! Waiting for “why the Beatles are the best band ever part 2” I have learned so much from the episodes- love geeking out to music trivia, music theory, and have been exposed to songs and musicians I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.

Show suggestion

Love the show- have been listening to you for a couple of years now. Moved to Vermont four years ago from Cape Town, where I was part of a social group we called the Red Wine and Loud Music Society. Your podcast is much in keeping with our format of debating “best of” themes in Classic Rock and Blues. I’ve been hoping you would have a show to debate the best double live albums (other than the best by far- Waiting for Columbus).

One of the best podcasts around.

Compelling questions thoughtfully explored by two extremely knowledgeable hosts. Highly recommended.
