A must for any Todd fan
The people putting together the "Brief History of Todd" series should win some kind of award. It's so well done -- one of my favorite series to listen to. I just discovered it in the last couple of months and have already almost worked my up to date -- I'll be anxious for more. Some of the other entries in the podcast are hit-and-miss, but for the most part are fun as well. Todd fans will love this stuff, and anyone interested in learning about Todd should give it a chance.
Poor Audio Quality
I can’t speak to the rest of the series, but EP33 - the Andy Partridge interview is almost unlistenable. Andy’s phone volume is so loud it crackles and pops and in contrast, the other callers are so low you can barely hear them. So if you do try to listen you are constantly raising and lowering the volume. Very disappointing. I honestly can’t believe something of this poor quality is actually even allowed on iTunes.
The "Brief History of Todd" series that forms the backbone of this podcast is remarkable - a series of 30 minute historical vignettes of Todd Rundgren (often with Utopia) at various stages of his career. Important songs are combined with period materials like radio interviews, promos, interview clips, TV appearances and other items that speak to a truly remarkable bit of TR-related archiving. The narration is well written and handled by a voice synthesizer... somewhat distracting, but well-suited to the technophile Rundgren. The depth and the richness of this podcast is likely unrivaled.
