Definitely listen to the "educational" podcasts from oldesurberstation

I found these podcasts overall to be somewhat inconsistent, some good while others weren't as interesting to me. However, I highly recommend listening to the "educational" podcasts about the history of bluegrass and the difference between bluegrass music and old time music (they really are different!). These selected podcasts are well worth the listen.

There doesn't seem to be any new content in a few years, unfortunately...

Where did you go Jack?

I certainly enjoyed the podcast. Very charming and witty presentation. But, sadly enough it seems to be AWOL. Jack, where are you?. I emailed oldersurbur and no reply. Anyone have any details of why this podcast has gone away without any goodbyes? I feel left in the dark. Come back Jack! Please...!

Worth listening to for fun and education

Jack Lewis did a great job in these 26 episodes to explain a lot about old time and bluegrass music. Several of his podcasts were helpful in telling you things like how the sound system works for a band or what the differences are between bluegrass and old time music. He also introduced a lot of good bands that play this kind of music. Inexplicably he quit adding new episodes in January but go back to these still - they are worth the listen. Let's hope he resumes soon.

College Degree

Not only is this a terrific podcast of quality music, but by the time you listen to Casts #1-#20 you will have a degree in Old Time and Bluegrass music theory. Jack is my professor of choice. Download these and burn them and hand them to friends, they won't be disappointed!
Thanks Jack for your commitment to quality musicianship.

I know it's Bluegrass/Mountain Music, but YOU rock!

Jack, I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy your podcast. I do magic shows on cruise ships & this music really helps me keep my feet planted firmly on the ground of my rural upbringings. I check for new downloads of your podcast every time we're in port. You are friendly, easy to understand and play GREAT music. I enjoy sharing the sounds with crewmembers from other countries and they enjoy it, too. I just did a "lookup" on itunes of my "most played" YOU are far & above #1! Thanks again, Jack. Keep up the good work!

Great!

I really like this podcast. Every show is enjoyable and I usually feel as if I've learned something new as well. If you enjoy traditional music you will love this podcast.

Wonderful!!

I've never really listened to Bluegrass and Old Time music before, but this is a great podcast with some fantastic toe-tapping music. Jack is so cool to listen to. He's laid back, which is quite different from my hectic city-suburbia lifestyle. He not a fast talker, and I really wanted to find a 'speed up' button at first, but I've come to love his pace, enjoying the ride and not just rushing to the destination. His podcasts make me want to get a freshly squeezed glass of lemonade and sit out on the back porch on the swing on a warm summer night and listen to his band play.

Outstanding Bluegrass Podcast

I'm rather new to bluegrass music and this podcast has been a wonderful introduction to the genre. Mr. Lewis is a great host. I especially like being introduced to lesser known bands.
