The Good ol' Days

Have you've ever wondered what are 'the good ol' days'? Listen to this podcast and you'll find out. Sure, the podcast is about guitar amps, but it's about guitar amps as much as 'Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintence' is about Motorcycles. Amp guru Skip Simmons is a talented repair man, a great story teller, a dedicated family man, and just plain good people. Jason's style of conversation and relationship to Skip makes you feel like your sitting on a wrap-around porch in California, beer in hand, laughing and getting advice from an old friend. I've enjoyed this podcast from the first miniute and I hope it continues for a long time.
