A fantastic take on live-storytelling
Storytelling shows are all the rage right now, so how do you know which live storytelling podcast to subscribe to? Well, this should certainly be one of them! Despite occasional sound (low-volume) issues, the stories are fantastic and often evoke nostalgia for the songs being focused on. It really takes you right to the moment that the story takes place and provides that much more of an impact to the listener.
Great podcast, and definitely one I look forward to each week!
Delicious Musical Story Bites
I don't remember how I happened upon this podcast so long ago now, but I love it. The original pieces from Le Poisson Rouge in NY always made me wish I lived there and could experience the shows live, and the produced segments are wonderful, too. If you love music, you will probably enjoy these amazing little snippets about the place of song in our lives. You may even get a little choked up.
