Real music talk (for a change)
In these daze of cut and paste journalism where real musical opinions in the media are completely lost or at the very best clueless and uneducated, these dudes dig DEEP into the already rare cuts, b-sides and bootlegs and get down n dirty; it's the Good, The Bad & The Ugly for real. I expect big things to come of this podcast.
Dope. Very good. Two thumbs up!
The reason I love this show is because its from REAL music experts vs a bunch of gossip mongers. Cant wait for the second episode. Devil's Pie to me one of the most powerful lyrics ever in R&B...props to DJ Premo.
Audio Liner Notes
I love the detail these guys go into concerning music I'm familiar and not so familiar with. They're essentially walking liner notes (for those that still read them). I also love the fact that I don't always agree with all of their opinions. It makes for an interesting show that keeps me coming back.
