    Broken Record Presents: Cautionary Tales - Bowie, Jazz and the Unplayable Piano

    Broken Record presents an episode of "Cautionary Tales": Bowie, Jazz and the Unplayable Piano

Should he risk humiliation and play anyway or simply walk out?

I can’t get enough oh Gladwell!!!

Such beautiful insights into the world of music. His questions are so poignant and he just brings out the best in the interviewees. You think u know and this podcast shows u how u know nothing. He has rekindled my love for the creative process and my love of music. Greetings from South Africa, comrade!

In danger of living up to it’s name

Still struggling to understand what this podcast is truly about. The introductory episode with Rick Rubin is amazing, but with enough material for 3 podcasts. Now it looks like a country music podcast, which is not as advertised (although the interviewed musicians are great).
Where’s Rick Ruben?! What does he hav to do with this show?! And wow Bruce Hedlum can be so insensitive!
Hope the record unbreaks itself soon.
