Customer Reviews

Essential Music Listening

An amazing show, one that is essential to any musician or music lover who wants to discover new music and keep up to date with artists new and old. The Desert Island Jukebox alone would make it worth downloading, but that's just the last five minutes of the show. Highly recommended.

Excellent source of new music

This podcast is fantastic. From the live performances to in-depth discussion of genres, Greg and Jim really highlight what's happening in music today. While I don't always agree with their "buy it, burn it, trash it" reviews, it does get me to check out new music. A can't miss for music nerds

My go-to music podcast

This is a great music podcast from a couple credible and knowledgeable music critics. I don’t listen to all the episodes, but when the topic is interesting to me, I know I’m in for a great show. I particularly enjoy when they go deep on a subject, like they did re: synthesizer Moog keyboards, or the episode dedicated to the legacy of Grateful Dead was excellent — enough rich content to appeal to newbies and superfans alike. Love the show, please keep it going for many years to come!
