Wonderful hangs, wonderful "sangs"
It's so refreshing to hear an interviewer who clearly loves music and musicians! There's also a wonderful sense of camaraderie in the conversations, like they really are just hanging out and "sanging" some songs. Such a fun thing to eavesdrop on. Can't wait to see who's coming up next!
Incredible Music Podcast!
Love the host!
Kelly is hands down one of my favorite interviewers of all time! Kelly is insightful, warm, witty and has an extensive knowledge of the music industry that supports the conversations with artists in a very natural and respectful way. So glad 'Hangin' & Sangin'' is up and running! I look forward to tuning in. - akka b.
