Nice one Tim. Thanks so much. I was pleasantly surprised to find Alan Wilkis on this list. I work at AmieStreet.com where we recently featured his album. Good stuff. Hope you are well.

Diggin’ the Foster Kids intro with cooler lyrics to “Islands In The Stream.”

Thanks for featuring Joe Raciti. He’s one of my favorite new artists! I love the song you picked too.

Wow. Awesome episode! So diverse and so good!

I always enjoy making and listening to the musicians episodes. We should have more of them! Thanks again to all the participants for their imaginative introductions and lovely tunes.


LOVED The Good Graces. Loved.

My submission is perhaps best enjoyed if you are familiar with the incident.

Yes! Thanks so much for including me, Tim! Joe, your tune sounds awesome.

i enjoyed this one so much. i love hearing the musicians talk about themselves and their music.

An honour to have taken part!


Finally got around to listening – I thought this was a great episode. I enjoyed Pinstripe 45’s especially, suits my current mood perfectly!

I loved these songs. Great intros, too. ist’s was particularly funny. The Foster Kids, Joe Raciti, Gladshot and Michael Stollaire were real stand-outs for me. Great track, too, Eiron. I remember seeing that clip, so I could really enjoy the song.

I’m always amazed at all the talent out there in the world and I feel the same as Marcy, it’s wonderful to hear musicians talk about their work. I liked this episode a lot. And of course it was a nice surprise to hear a familiar voice 55 minutes in 🙂

Thanks everyone!
