Well worth the listen
I thought I knew a lot about music. You guys are on a whole other level. Definitely adding this show to the rotation.
I only listen to the Well of Sound
Have you heard The Well of Sound? If you’ve ever wondered about the history of Little Feat or whatever happened to Mott the Hoople, or if you have any interest in the most captivating commentary on the popular music of the last 50 years, you must check out this amazing podcast hosted by David Zahl and the inimitable Lex. How does anyone know so much about Glen Campbell or know how to spin the tale of Cheap Trick into a compelling narrative? I only listen to The Well of Sound and You should too.
I love Rock n Roll... and this podcast
There is so much here. No time wasted on long intros. They just get into the music. Each episode is like a "Behind the Music" if hosted by Jack Black from Hi Fidelity--though without an edge. Just two guys who love music. There's a humility--love it when they find out one knows a song that the other doesn't. They are simultaneously sharing their love for music while discovering new music. I have learned so much from listening--and I've loved every minute. Lots of laughs, pathos, connection, and fun. Listen up!
