This is not only good, in the sense someone has taken the trouble to find the best songs in each genre, it is educational with a brief background of each musical movement. It would be even better with dates and perhaps a brief annotation for each.

Just realised it's not actually 75 hours worth of music, as not all of the episodes are 1 hour long. Some are 30 or 40 mins. I exaggerated in an FPP and haven't been called out yet...!

Pleased you're all enjoying it. This guy knows his stuff!

See you at the party Saddo!

Yes! This is great. The only way it could be improved would be to have individual MP3's in zipped files. But, when something this great comes along I hate to sound like I'm criticizing it. Just incredible music.
