Customer Reviews

Finally, it's a podcast, or is it :(

I have listened to Allen Cross' ongoing history of new music for years now. I live north of Buffalo, NY, and am able to pick up Canadian radio stations, what's up Ontario, so I listen to his show each week off of 102.5 FM, out of Toronto. I've been waiting forever for this to come out in podcast form and finally it's here, or is it? I was disappointed to find out these are only 60 second snippets cut from the actual show. I'm still giving it four stars cause Allen rocks but please please post the shows in there entirety. It would be the #1 podcast without a doubt. The ongoing history of new music is the most informative and entertaining show about music that exists. You will learn so much obscure behind the scenes information about bands and have fun doing it. Thanks Allen. Oh ya, I'm the first to comment suckas!


I agree with the other guy who rated this podcast. I used to drive back and forth from Ohio to Buffalo, NY. Once in a while I'd get lucky; somewhere around Ashtabulah,OH I would get in about 30 minutes of a Canadian station that carried this show and I've been yearning for it ever sense. Only a minute doesn't give you a good idea of how well researched and entertaining the radio version is. Allen, if you're out there, people who can't get in your stations need your full show on iTunes!

One Minute. Really.

Given how this is so widely broadcast over Canada and now it's even on the air in Buffalo, to put a one-minute snippet pretty much states the obvious.

Big Steve doesn't want you listening to the tunes Cross plays without paying.
