Bravo!

Congratulations on a terrific maiden voyage into the podcast world! The conversation was interesting, the sound quality was quite stellar, and the musical guest was my favorite on the planet! (Ok... I may be a little biased here😉) Best wishes for a long, successful run, and many thanks to all for being so supportive of working Memphis musicians!
