Passion at its finest..
In the same manner Bob Dylan was born to write music and Gabriela Quintero was born to play guitar, Zan Rowe was born to find incredibly interesting people, welcome them warmly into a space, make them feel comfortable and delicately and deftly draw interesting stories out of their song choices. It amazing how much you learn and how much you are affected by hearing the stories of people you’ve never heard of before as much as those stories of your idols.. This is the epitome of journalism for me and I have come to admire Zan as much as her one off presenters. She oozes coolness and her infectious interest has made me reconsider artists I previously had no time for.. I was shattered when she left JJJ but have absolutely found solace in this podcast and Bang On. I can’t find a list of super old archived ones but one that stick out that i remember being amazing fairly recently was the female comedian that played Lean On Me by Bill Withers and takes her audience on some sort of emotional rollercoaster. Unfortunately I can’t remember her name. Also Caribou, I feel like Zan was fan-girlling hard during the Caribou Take 5..You are amazing and if you read this and get even the slightest bit of joy from it, at least it hasn’t all been one sided. Thank you!
