A documentary without compare
It's true that Split Enz are not well known in the US but here's hoping that this stunning documentary changes that. Enz released some of the most inventive records of the late 70s and early 80s. This podcast covers the band's interesting history and is one of the most complete and well produced documentaries of it's kind. A must listen for fans of the band, Tim Finn, Neil Finn, Crowded House and all of their incarnations - but music fans should listen and hear how well a documentary can be produced.
This is the podcast that music fans will love. I was so excited to hear this was coming to the U.S. and I didn't realize just how thorough and fascinating the show would be. Absolutely a must for anyone who enjoys a story about the music business and how it works. Obviously, Split Enz and Crowded House and Finn fans all over the world will be well pleased to hear it too.
If You Like Music, Listen to This!
This radio-documentary is a must-listen to all Frenz and rock music lovers of any sort. There are interviews from band members, managers, industry executives; there are nervous breakdowns, triumphs, and tantrums. Above all, there are previously unbroadcasted demos and live recordings which will blow you away. If I could give this podcast 100 stars, I would. Great job by Radio NZ!
