Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World is the web's original modcast celebrating the music of the mod lifestyle, as well as mod-influenced music from past eras. You'll hear everything from power pop to rock, soul to ska, acid jazz to lounge, and whatever falls in between.One of the things which has impressed me most in life was the mod movement in England, which was an incredible, youthful thing." -- Pete Townshend, The Who, 1968 Catalogued here are the sights and sounds of mod as I understand it. Much will be familiar to other mods. I realize many narrow-minded people, mods and others, will look at much of this and dismiss it as not truly "mod." So be it. However you view it, I hope you enjoy exploring these sights and sounds as much as I did putting them together.

This is the Best by Far
I can't believe there is a podcast devoted to the mod movement. Because of this podcast, it has made me take a look at other bands that have shaped this movement, from Weller, the Who, the Jam, and many others (to many to mention). Keep up the great work Mr. Suave so that others can see the importance this British movement had on American music and vise versa!
This is one of my top two favorite music podcasts. It doesn't get any better than MOD. Clean living under difficult circumstances. Smart, hip, funny, serious and stylish. Mr. Suave's got it all, the host with the most!
Can't go without my Mod Mod World
Hands down the best podcast out there for the mod genre. From the 60's bands, 80's mod revival in San Diego, to modern power pop...this show has it all and Rob is one suave cat.. Love it.
