Pure Nonsense Band ,

It’s like talking about music with my friends

I was very hopeful when I learned this was coming and it’s lived up to my expectations. This feels like the musical conversations I have with my friends. Also, they are very interactive with their fans which is great.

Do it.

Listen for some laughs, great insight, and pure musical appreciation. You’ll be glad you did.

Fun, funny & educational

I love to listen to music but didn’t know how much I wasn’t picking up on until I started listening to this podcast. It’s super interesting to listen to these nerds really break it all down. It’s fun when they start getting tipsy in the episodes. The personalities of the hosts mesh so well! One is a little bit of a curmudgeon & the other is in a forever positive mood. It’s a delight to listen to!
