PRS6565 ,

Thanks guys!!!

Just discovered your show. I am also a working musician and it’s great listening to others talk shop. I’ve been listening (or trying!) to another cover band podcast for quite some time called “Gig ...” . Ugh.. they sound more like a couple radio DJ’s that are more concerned with how good they sound and terrible content! So fake! Keep the shows coming and thanks again.
