Looking forward to this one, having been a past Q107 listener and hearing Jeffs work.
He and Alan Cross have such an encyclopedia of Rock knowledge, a shame he was let go.

I could have chatted with Jeff for another 3 hours.

In fact, he promised to come back in six months when he moves back to Toronto.

Yes! Downloading mp3 as we speak. This is great cause I can't find anything to watch on tv and I've been looking forward to this one.

Those Jeff Woods shows on Sunday night Q were the best. Just before Little Steven's Underground Garage right? Do I have that right? Anyway I loved his insights. Will have to listen to this.

Fuck man, I keep thinking you've recorded your best ep and then I like the next one just as much or more. This ep is killer, man. Awesome, awesome stuff.

U R Great Mike.

You guys are too kind, but Jeff Woods deserves most of the credit.

A bit of time away from the office and just doing some things that have allowed me to catch a number of podcasts lately has me agreeing with the kudos being tossed Mike's way. You've had a run of really good guests who can carry their own, but you've done a really good job of "setting them up", Mike, along with keeping control of the podcast so that it doesn't develop a life of its own and run away on you and listeners.

Did his voice change at all off mic that you noticed? Did he have an' instant on' sound when you started recording? His podcast sounds great too.

He sounded the same when he called me a couple of days earlier. And after, when he was chatting up my 2 year old and my wife, he sounded the very same.

Start smoking at 8, kids.

Is that Jeff Woods or James Hetfield with you in the pic? :)

What is the name of the Pink Floyd like bank Jeff mentions near the end of the podcast?

Good one mike. I listened at work late yesterday. I didn't expect to listen to it all at the time but got so engaged i stayed at work almost an hour later than i needed too as i forgot the time.

By the time Jeff got to Q107 I wasn't a very frequent listener ( I Love Led Zep but really how many times can anyone here Stairway to heaven ?) so I never really connected with him on the radio. I wish i had tuned in more to hear him anyway.

Just finished, great episode!

Cant wait for Jeff to come back again.

Another great episode Mike!

I just thought to share this info for those who enjoy Jeff's work, voice & gift for interesting storytelling.
