I always learn about great music I didn't know
What I love about this podcast is that I always hear some amazing music that I had never heard before, or even a COMPOSER I have never heard of before. I feel like the show opens marvelous doors for me, behind which are hidden gems. I think it should be required listening for those studying at the univerity level! But its for general-population music listeners, too - like my wife. Witty, cleaver, educational, enjoyable, satisfying, and fun! Love it!
