Hell yeah

Saw Larry in “A Strange Loop” this summer and was so thankful for this vault of delicious content to hold me over until the cast recording dropped. Except hold me over is the wrong phrase because I continue to devour everything that comes out of his mouth and onto the internet / my phone

Heart WARMING

Larry is such a special podcast host, his comedy and singing make me smile ear to ear. His guests are always interesting and he always brings such a variety of songs and conversations to the table. Can’t wait for more!

The Most Perfect

This show has revitalized my life. To hear so many people unpack their relationship to music is such a joy and pleasure. Plus it’s an outlet to hear Larry Owens consistently sing a VARIETY of songs. So special. So sweet. SO funny. We are blessed to have it.

“It’s a comedy podcast about music”...

...but they get so wrapped up in forcing songs into the conversation that they forget about being funny.My advice: Listen to Larry sing the requested song at the top of the pod and skip through to his “vanity singing” at the end. Everything else is filler.

Peach Cobbler for the black gay soul

Larry and his guests give me every drop of life I need to get through these lil doordash deliveries...this podcast is for anyone who checks off any boxes of black, gay, theatre lover, Patti LaBelle/LuPone enthusiasts, breathing humans, and cultured individual. The only way I could imagine this podcast being better is if we got to hear Larry blow through Home (the Wiz) and Ain’t It Good (Children of Eden)! Keep shining and reveling in all your beautiful blackness!✨

Larry is world class

It's a beautiful podcast, filled with rich music and friendship among artists on the rise. Larry and James have a lovely rapport, and the guests are well-curated. It never fails to put me in a good mood. Larry is too talented to miss. My DREAM is to hear some Dusty Springfield done Larry-style. One day, perhaps!

The requests and vanity singing!

I had never heard the song “Daybreak” (or the fact that there was a Floyd Collins musical haha) and it was so good! James’s falsetto was also so pretty! Keep it going, loving the pod :)

This podcast is amazing! Heard the ad on Black amen Can’t Jump and was instantly hooked! It’s like the perfect combo of Off Book and Spontaneanation :) I’m the new biggest fan of Larry and am so thrilled that he had this platform! Would love to hear you do World Burn from the Mean Girls musical dude!!

Fully Amazing

There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who like and appreciate musical theater and those who are upset Dress Barn closed. If you’re at a loss for where to purchase your polka dotted cold-shoulder flutter-sleeve chiffon dresses for next spring probably won’t love this show. But everyone else will.I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again here an now. Even a passing interest and appreciation for musical theater should be enough to urge you to subscribe.Do you like singing in the shower to your favorite bops? Is there always a song in your heart? Do pop songs from the late 90s and early aughts bring up misty water colored memories for you?This. Is. Your. Show!

Almost amazing

I could really get into this show if there were fewer musical theatre moments. More mainstream music please!
