I've recently started listening to these podcasts and I'm enjoying them apart from one small thing, the volume levels. The relaxed chatty style is great but at times a little quiet, making me crank up the volume to hear it properly. Then when a piece of music kicks in I'm scrambling to turn it down, it's painful on headphones or in the car. Keep up the great work, but sort out the levels please.

I have been waiting for this podcast since I hunched over a transistor at the age of 14, trying to record Don't Stop Me Now and cut off the DJ intro. Can't thank you enough. Bring on the next 20 episodes.
