An absolute Godsend!

I too love this show. I felt like no one cared about the, let's say, more marginal musicians I always loved but wondered whatever happened to. So many great stories here that I've been chain-listening for the last several weeks. Jon Lamoreaux's unapologetic love for his idols, many of which are mine too, is extremely validating for music geeks like me. Please, PLEASE, keep churning them out, Jon. You're not alone!

For Hardcore Music Lovers

I just discovered this podcast, and I’m currently in binge mode. I had been listening to the band Guadalcanal Diary, and I decided to search podcasts for lead singer Murray Attaway. The Hustle came up and looked interesting. I downloaded the Murray Attaway episode, then proceeded to discover a treasure trove of episodes dedicated to one-hour-plus interviews of musicians such as Chris Butler of The Waitresses, Don Dixon, Franke Previte of Franke and the Knockouts, Chris White of the Zombies, Brent Bourgeois, Liberty Devitto, and the list goes on. They aren’t household names (except in my household), and it’s great to hear in-depth interviews with musicians I’ve loved for years who don’t get a great deal of coverage.

I also like how the podcast deals with the business side of the music industry, giving an insight we don’t often get to hear about. Parts of some interviews can be hard to make out when dealing with road noise or other distractions, but Jon is at the mercy of the phone lines and can’t necessarily be faulted for that. OK, I have four years worth of episodes to catch up on.
