I’ve been listening for a couple years and absolutely love the show. So thorough, excellent perspective, and always makes me feel warm and excited and more connected to my own lived history :)

Alan has been the King of all things Rock Related here in Canada for decades! Both passionate and knowledgeable about all topics involved. Definitely a must listen!

I used to love listening to this show on the radio. Sounds like driving home in the evening from visiting my mom. Alan Cross has the best voice and the smoothest delivery. I could listen to this show every day.

I really enjoyed this podcast even though I am not a hard core music fan. It presents the information in an interesting way that is easy to understand.

I just discovered this podcast and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve already learned a lot about The Beastie Boys and John Frusciante. I can’t wait to listen to even more episodes.

I loved listening to history of new music on the radio and still do. Having this as a podcast allows me to listen some of my favourites all over again. Alan is always insightful, thorough well spoken.

Great content but the amount and length of the ads makes it very annoying to listen to
Sweetcar42 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/13/23
I've listened to Alan Cross and TOHONM for 30 years. Before the internet and podcasts I'd be parked in my car in the driveway because I couldn't tear away from a minute of the show. This is by far the best music radio show and now the best music podcast. Always impeccably researched...Read full review »

While I still enjoy the Monday night syndicated shows, listening to so many previous episode and the ability to re-listen has made my life more enjoyable thanks to Alan Cross’ radio series “The Ongoing History of New Music”. Thank you for making this podcast available.

Neatly packed in and written. Good narratives about interesting parts of music history. Great podcast of its kind.
Geumpyhistory via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/22
The more I know about the history of modern music, the more I enjoy it, for the most part! This podcast is a fantastic example of what the podcast industry should strive to be. Well produced, researched and written episodes are the standard here. Thanks for all you do, keep it up Mr. Cross and team!

I think there are more ads than content.. i love the content but it’s getting harder to enjoy w all the ads.
illin33 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/10/22
I’ve been listening to Alan since the mid to late 90’s when he was on the Edge in Toronto. He has always put out great content that makes you coming back for more. You will not regret listening to his podcasts.
Sixstring78 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/22/22
Love him and the stories but please cut the ads down!!
Aurelius16 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/05/22
Can’t believe I’ve never heard this podcast or radio show - love it !!
Casemo7 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/07/22
Alan does the best history of music podcast out there. I have learned so much I didn’t know previously. I tune in EVERY week!!!
BaldEagle_77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/22
Discovered this pod cast and I am officially hooked! Its so informative and super nostalgic to learn about the history of all the alternative bands I have grown up loving in the 90’s and beyond! I especially loved the mention in the 90’s festival episode about Reading Festival in the UK which is...Read full review »

Can you play longer music clips? 5 seconds isn’t enough lol
Bonhelm via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/11/22
Hooked on this podcast! Very informational and no filler! By the way, on the Nirvana episode, Niles is outside Youngstown not Columbus!
Griffy68 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/22
I’m normally a fan of this show. However, how can you do an episode on the history of alt-rock protest songs, cover British and Canadian punk and not even mention Dead Kennedys? Their entire existence is a protest song.
Fluffkiller via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/22
I’ve been listening to Alan on the radio for years and years and always feel engaged by not only the well researched and excellent content, but his voice is like a friend in my head. I’m no longer in Canada and live on the other side of the world, but Alan’s voice gives me a slice of home. This...Read full review »

History of vinyl and electric guitars is info hitting way above weight. Keep that Nerd Edge. Keep coming back for more.
TheSkipr via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/19/22
I’ve been a loyal fan for at least 15 years. The “bonus” episodes are just reruns that are already on iTunes. And podcasts. If you want to bring episodes up from the archives can you please resurrect episodes that have not been listened to on this exact podcast service already. The last hours...Read full review »

This show is great and he covers so much - only reason it's not a five-star ratin is because on the occasions he dips into political analysis, it needs a lot of work.Read full review »
Boj Angles via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/22
I’m always pumped to see a new episode drop. I’m endlessly fascinated by all the stories, trivia and backstage scoops Alan presents on this show. He’s also a master storyteller and communicator. Can’t get enough! 🤘
pnowen via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/10/22
I have been listening to Allan Cross for over 2 decades, going back to when CFNY was a real alt station, I never get tired of his musical knowledge. If you are any fan of music tune in ! I guarantee you will walk away with some trivia on artists that you would never have learned otherwise. One of...Read full review »

Best podcast I have found. I am halfway through the 300+ episodes.
WilliamJ2021 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/22
I have been listing to the podcast for a year and each episode is as great as the last one keep up the good work🤟
ajvt1 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/27/22
Lots of really great episodes and interviews - unfortunately the amount of ads has discouraged me from tuning in lately
hendrix4545 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/16/22
I love this podcast, I’ve been listening to Allan since high school (I’m 41 now). I’m not sure what I’m paying for, I’ve seen no reason to pay maybe I’m wrong but I don’t see the difference in the podcast between paying and not paying

Can’t find a better podcast ❤️

I really enjoy listening! Sometimes it’s a trip down memory lane, sometimes it’s learning something new and it’s always enjoyable highly recommended to anyone who loves music -thank you for capturing all of this and sharing it’s a pleasure to listen
kare t-g via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/08/22
Always informative, well researched and coming from a genuine love of the music. Like the cool friend of the older brother you may not have. If you’re about to turn 50, you need this. Any younger, you definitely want this.
Whigpresident via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/26/21
Ever since I started listening to the On Going History of New Music back in High School, I’ve loved the stories and interesting facts but most of all, I love Alan’s delivery. Love it all.
Bradrey the canuck via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/15/21
Grew up listening to Alan Cross on the radio in Toronto and he is truly second to none. This podcast loses a star because we’re only getting snippets of music. Would be absolutely perfect if we could get full length tracks instead of these frustrating teasers. This is probably a licensing issue...Read full review »

History of music from an old, white dude with out of date taste… yay

Sssssaaaakkkkggggssndjxgbs via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/22/21
These guys have always been unreal. Where to find anyone who can do that level of research. Plus super fun to listen to.My only question is if they are at near 1000 episodes, where are the rest?
JayF'nMo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/16/21
To me Alan has always been the voice of my music. I’ve listened to CFNY since I was in high school, so for 31 years at least. This podcast is equal parts nostalgia for me and intriguing. Bar none the most superior music podcast out there. Please keep up the amazing work. I know how hard you work...Read full review »

Alan Cross is not only a Canadian broadcasting treasure, but this podcast is one of the most informative and well researched ones out there. I recommend it to my fellow music fans when I get the chance. Great stuff!
