I’ve been listening since 2007 and it’s still my favorite podcast. Thank you Bob Boilen for making us a place to hear new, quality music. I have been introduced to some of my favorite musicians on your show, like Ty Segall, Car Seat Headrest, Bon Iver, Typhoon, Tank and the Bangas, and hundreds more.
I’ve loved all of the contributors over the years and I still miss the type of music that Carrie Brownstein used to share with us. All the guest hosts are great, and there is a large variety of music introduced and with special episodes having different platforms and hosts for different music tastes.
What’s with Ann Powers not having her own podcast? She’s got so much to say about the Grammy world, the Nashville music scene, Pop music, female musicians, Americana, Country, Indie Americana. I often wonder why NPR hasn’t given her her own affiliated podcast to properly cover pop/country music.
