Fan from San Fran ,

Delightful insights!

Do you like The Buzzcocks, Elvis Costello, old punk rock, and Nick Lowe? Are you a music nerd? Then this podcast is for you.

I love how you listen to iterations of singles by different artists and learn the history behind the album artwork. These guys are very funny, and they were in a band in the 80's called "The Beef People", so they have interesting personal anecdotes too. They're knowledgable and offer an intelligent, North Carolinian flavor(dry humor, add vinegar) which makes the listening experience truly singular. Strong recommend!
