A decade ago (July 14, 2011 to be precise), I unleashed the first episode of Love That Album podcast on the world. Music journalist and massive Bruce Springsteen fan, Jeff Jenkins and I debated which was a better album from the Boss – The Wild, The Innocent and the E Street Shuffle (me) or Darkness On The Edge of Town (Jeff). I'm pretty sure I won......
I had no idea what I was doing in regards to audio quality (I still don’t), editing or how the discussion would go. In 2011, however, podcasting was not as ubiquitous as it’s become, so I didn’t feel any embarrassment at throwing the show out there with others that put far more work into making their programs great.
Welcome to the 10th anniversary edition of Love That Album.
I’m not under any illusions that this little show of discussions with fellow music fans about records we (mostly) love is in the upper stratosphere of the medium. However, I’ve loved (nearly) every conversation that I’ve had with marvellous people who were giving of their time, spirit and enthusiasm…and that counts for plenty. Also, anyone who ever downloaded an episode to actively listen also receives my huge gratitude. You're grouse!!!!
While not wanting to go overboard on this, I did think that celebrating the show running for 10 years was appropriate. My idea was to ask 7 previous guests to talk about some favourite albums released during its lifetime. To that end, I have broken up the show into two separate episodes because I didn’t think that a 4 hour plus episode would work for anyone (with the possible exception of fans of The Projection Booth).
For this first part, you will hear from Jeff Jenkins, music writer and author Ian McFarlane, host of LTA: The Compilation Edition Eric Peterson, and music / film writer and author Heather Drain. Get your pens and paper out to take notes for some great album recommendations you’ll need to follow up. In the end, creating this podcast has given me the opportunity to reach out to these and many others to talk about music – one of my favourite things to do, no matter what Frank Zappa said.

If you’d consider writing an iTunes review I’d be immensely grateful. However, it’d be even better if you told a friend about the podcast and Pantheon – at a barbecue, over coffee, on social media….whatever way you choose, consider me grateful.
