Great Podcast

Finally a great podcast about the Kinks probably the most underrated band of all time. I love how passionate the podcaster is about them. Love the Beatles stuff too but it’s just really nice to see a good podcast about the Kinks.

Full of himself

I was initially enjoying the discussion and musical analysis of these great songs but when fully half of the discussion became about how "Young and Innocent Days" could have been improved I lost my patience and deleted the podcast. It cannot be improved. Your criticism is pointless.

great beats

This podcast hit the mark. Tony is very knowledgable, and goes deep!
