Well-organized podcast with great guests!

This has become one of my favorite podcasts and I’ve gone back to listen to previous years’ episodes. Joe does an excellent job researching and organizing each episode, and the guests are always engaging and knowledgable. I’ve learned a lot even from episodes about artists I didn’t think I was interested in! It’s focused on the Rock Hall but will appeal to anyone interested in pop music history. I hope Joe and Kristen continue it next year!

I learn something every time

I've been listening for years and feel bad that I'm only just getting around to rating it. Joe and Kristen are SOOOO good at what they do! They really balance each other with a perfect blend of knowledge, humor, and editorializing. I've learned so much through this show, especially when they invite rock historians.

A perpetual music history extravaganza

This amazing podcast has triggered many deep dives into artists I would have never found otherwise. Despite the snarky title, the “rock hall” theme is merely a vehicle for a perpetual debate about early influencers, emerging legends and icons across almost any genre, ranging from rock to rap to blues/r&b and its many variants. The arguments about who deserves Hall recognition and when is always entertaining. Where else will you hear hilarious conversations w music historians, comedians and journalists all in one place? Required listening for any music nerd.
