Customer Reviews

composer quest

Good interviews and fascinating interviewees! Great stories to listen to.


Charlie has managed to make this podcast interesting even for a non-songwriter such as myself. The guests are intelligent and eloquent, the questions are probing, and the music samples add context to the discussion. The superior produciton (NPR-quality, if I do say so myself!) belies the fact that it's made in a bedroom studio. (Contact Charlie, I'm sure he'll give you a tour!) Even with only four episodes released, there have already been a great variety of topics. I look forward to hearing where Charlie takes this podcast in the future! I recommend 'Composer Quest' to any music fan. Maybe it'll inspire you to take up composing or songwriting!

Good Work Charlie!

Interesting and good information (even for non-music majors!)
