Just The Best!

Larry Owens is such a talent and a treasure, and an amazing personality and host! He is able to have such fascinating conversations around music with guests from all different backgrounds. So much to love!

Work Goodness!

I assume most people listen to pods when they commute or clean or, like me, work! Not only do I love this concept and Larry Owens is the perfect person to host but it’s perfection to listen to at work. Here’s why! A problem I run into often is that I can’t listen to podcasts AND type out responses to emails/whatever, it’s impossible to listen and think of a response at the same time. BUT THIS PODCAST IS A MIX OF MUSIC AND TALKIN! Perfect to mix with writing emails and I can still enjoy the dialogue.

Also if you’re a fan of the unofficial experts hot producer Andrew is in here too 😊

This Show is Queer Glory

Larry Owens brings unequivocal joy to my life. During these, The End Times, WMYS is one of the few things that fill me with joy and pride of being a big, gay actor in the Midwest. All of the Sondheim references, the correct pronunciation of Audra McDonald's name, and constant riffs make this show fit for the Queer Canon. Thank you thank you thank you.
