This is a super-fans delight!

Steve and T-bone repeatedly deliver honest and insightful album reviews of legendary bands that shaped an entire generation and still deserve the attention today! I’m hooked and looking forward to more!

Necessary!

This podcast fills a much-needed niche in popular music. The New Wave sound was/is so fantastic, but since its heyday passed, it’s hard to find news and reviews on it. Well, here ya go. My only quibble - and this after listening to many episodes - is that the reviews tend to sound repetitive and rehearsed. You get a very strong sense that the comments are just being read from note cards and not extemporaneous. If I hear “you’re reading my notes” one more time…

I’ve Been Waiting!

As a true first generation New Waver & alternative music lover, I find it so dismissive when a ‘legacy’ band releases something new and it’s ignored. This podcast does a noble service to those releases. Well done!
