Ten Albums That Hit Us Right in the Feels

Usually I’d write something about challenges and solutions, blah blah blah, here…

But today I just want to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who has listened to the Bandhive Podcast, shared it with their friends, or been a guest on the show. You all rock!

Join us for this special episode where Matt and I talk about our favorite music – we hope you’ll find some new favorites of your own.

We also want to hear what your favorites are, so let us know! There’ll be a post for episode 100 in our Facebook group where you can share your favorite albums in a comment.

Thanks again, and keep rockin!


What you’ll learn:

  • Matt and James are über music nerds and made 250+ references in one hour
  • Love for a band is subjective, but appreciation for music is universal
  • Matt and James both have guilty pleasures
  • We managed to record this whole episode without a single Rick Astley reference
