FANTASTIC!!! A MUST LISTEN! Know about these guys that are interviewed!
I have been wanting for this kind of podacast that talks to musicians. Great musians that write thier own music and no one knows about because they are not on the radio!! It's a must listen and learn about these musicians! I know almost everyone thats come up so far except #2 show and now I am liking Josh Morningstar.
Great podcast for real music lovers
