Pimpenhoe ,

A Great Podcast for a wide spectrum of musical genres.

A great podcast for the listener of varied genres of music. Singer-Songwriter, Pop, Rock, Classic, and current artists are well represented here. The more recent Six-Packs, EM series, Picks The Essential, and Same Pagecast specials are as entertaining and we’ll-presented as the standard PS episodes.
Hosts Eric Miller and Craig Smith, along with a number of special co-hosts provide intelligent conversation as well as their own brand of humor to the shows.

Grab a Six Pack and dig in.

Really enjoyed the incredibly deep dive into McCartney's catalog. Even the arguments! And the Six Packs (6 songs from one artist with personal stories and band facts) are fun too. 5 STARS!
