Hohner C ,

The world’s greatest harmonica podcast

Tomlin is great! He is a friendly, kind, charismatic and interesting interviewer. He is able to get the world’s best harmonica players as guests. He is a great fan and a great teacher at the same time. I have listened to every podcast and I look forward to each new episode. I always learn something new. Sometimes the geeky technical stuff is way over my head. I’m always amazed at the stuff happening in the world that I was not aware of, including harmonica theory. Highly recommend if you have any interest in harmonica

Outstanding

Great podcast for harmonica players! Perfect for listening in the car and supplementing what I watch on YouTube. Keep it up. More guests!

Amazing with caveats

I’m hooked on it and listening to one a day. I love it, but for me, it would be even better if he cut down the covid 19 talk (so drained from hearing about it), discussed the equipment the players use (harmonica, tunings, mic, amp), and tightened it up a little on the non-harmonica chit-chat. That said, I’ll listen to every episode while on the subway. Fantastic gift to the community.
