Must Listen

A fantastic show with great hosts! I love hearing the things they pick up on in the songs they cover and the variety of genres they visit. A must listen for any music lover!

Interesting and fun to listen to :)

I LOVE YNL. This production value of this podcast is top notch, and listening to Shaun and Jim chat about their weekly song choices is so interesting – gives me a different perspective on music as a whole. Also, since they are father and son, it's really great to hear their personal stories come through and their relationship. They seem like fun people, and I can't recommend this podcast enough!

Fun and Thought Provoking...

Check this show out!!! This show is fun and gets you listening to an old favorite, a song you didn’t like but maybe should, a song that’s new to you or one you’ve never really had an opinion on. Either way you may learn something, get a laugh or simply add a new song to your Playlist.
Highly recommended!!
