Awesome idea, music delivers.
These guys are a great band, and they've chosen the perfect medium to share their music. The host (Dan Cole) has an amazing chemistry with the musicians, and the podcast format allows a story to be told. Not just the interesting background behind each song, but also the bigger picture of who these guys are as songwriters.
I look forward to hearing more of the story.
Whoever came up with the idea for this podcast is a friggin genius. There should be weekly shout outs for that guy. What an utterly brilliant idea by him. He should win an Emmy. No, he should win 20 Emmy's. Genius, genius, GENIUS!
The music is good too.
