Can you do a segment on ELO and Jeff Lynn? That would be awesome to get that full story.

Hey mark, any chance we will ever get a cool stories ft Aerosmith? That would be a kick A$$ show along with all the others. Keeping my fingers crossed for this one.

Is there a way to listen to old episodes? I’d love to hear the one on The Police.

How can I order the Jeff Lynne segment of Cool Stories. I just realized how talented this guy is. My nephew was listening to him at 12 years old. I want to share it with him.

My introduction to Genesis came on the heels of discovering Phil Collins’ second solo album, Hello, I Must Be Going. I remember it so clearly. I was away at camp, climbing Half Dome (in Yosemite). I was struggling in the heat and a friend lent me her walkman (yeah, walkman) to help distract me. I had a visceral reaction. I loved the whole album, but the drum introduction on I Don’t Care Anymore was what hooked me. I listened over and over, the music driving me on the hike. I made a mental note to go home and find every album I could by Phil Collins, Genesis, Peter Gabriel, etc.
Though we had to turn around just before reaching the summit because of an impending storm, I will never forget how that music got me through those few days. I made a friend who showed me kindness and compassion and introduced me to music that to this day makes everything better. Amazing, how music can do that.
The episode tonight (3/19/17) centered on Genesis and the solo careers of three of the main members was just what this SoCal native needed. Thank you.

My brother Joey gave me a collection of “Cool Stories” as a Christmas present and I must say, I am impressed!! I have listened to three of them so far (Super-Clean Bubblegum, Harry Nilsson, Bee Gees) and I loved what I heard.

Thanks for the Fleetwood Mac episode, Mark! It’s my favorite, so far. (Nilsson and Badfinger were tied for 1st place before that.)
I never would have said I was a fan a Fleetwood Mac, even though I grew up with their music, and even bought the “25 Years: The Chain” box set to have all of their hits – old and new – in the same place. (Only to find out it wasn’t complete. No “Hold Me.”) I’m listening to that old box set again on my phone – after re-sequencing it in chronological order first!
Thanks again, and looking forward to the next one!

Thank you for the segment on Fleetwood Mac! RUMOURS is still the best break-up album of all time. No competition. So thrilled Christine McVie is back with the band. Seeing them live with her back is like closing your eyes and traveling back in time.
