Music Commentary

Dan Hanzus and Bob Castrone love listening to music- almost as much as they love hanging out in a garage and talking about it. On The Throwback Podcast, lifelong friends revisit important albums from their past and go through them–track by track– with fresh ears. From the classics to the cringeworthy, every week is a throwback.
