The selections always surprise and entertain. And I dare say educate and expand my appreciation of music I wouldn’t otherwise be exposed to.

This guy knows his quality music, regardless of genre. Each show is an invitation to hang out. I can’t say why this hits me in the feels each time, but next time I’m in Joshua Tree, I’m buying Ben lunch.

I found this show by listening to XPN, which broadcasts out of Philadelphia. I love the eclectic nature of the music, of never knowing what I’m going to hear next— it’s thrilling, haha! This show has introduced me to so many wonderful, “lost” songs — and I can’t help but think what a shame that...Read full review »

We listen weekly. It comes right after Weasel from Baltimore WTMD TOWSON 89.7. Both are excellent shows. We’re glad to find them. we have been listening to weasel for 40 years. Mike and Kathy Shetz in Baltimore.

Nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon in the moody Mojave desert than listen to the many moods of Ben Vaughn. If I miss a show, I can now listen to the podcast. Very cool!

How apropos a name for Ben Vaughn’s weekly show. Music is a mood thing for me and depending on the mood depends on the genre. Ben provides the mood and the genre in a off beat but classic manner.

Take a journey through the echoes of your mind, from coast to coast, rockin’, rollin’, rhythm and blues’n, swinging and swaying to the Many Moods in the Relay Shack, parts unknown, USA.

Soulful, swinging, smart & weird. Grooving to stuff I’ve deeply loved and almost forgotten & other treasures I didn’t know existed but can’t believe I’ve lived without. It’s like going to a magical garage sale of music. Much thanks for a great show.

The very best music! It’s like he is composing the play list for me.
Davedavedave! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/20
The best music podcast I have listen to since podcasts have entered the scene.

Over the last many years, I have rarely failed to tune in to the WXPN broadcast 88.5 FM on Saturday nights. There is a library of his shows as Podcasts. So I can make any day feel like a Saturday by listening. All shows are a mix of genres, and you likely won’t know some of the artists but...Read full review »

I stumbled upon this program 3 weeks ago and absolutely love it. So much great music I never heard before from lots of different genres. Like the way radio used to be! Each week a new program is carefully cultivated around the theme of “feel good” music. A timely find during COVID lockdown. ...Read full review »

How he manages to find so much lesser known and yet wonderful music from many periods is beyond me. A fabulous listen

Ben curates such an odd and ear-wormy playlist that you can not help but love it.
feartheterrapin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/20
Músicas muy diferentes, como los estados de ánimo de Ben, pero siempre deliciosas y emotivas. Solo una pega: algunos artistas, aunque magníficos como Kinks, Beatles, Velvet Underground, las Ronnettes, son demasiado habituales...
Jota Marti via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 12/23/19
The Many Moods is eclectic and fun and pretty weird. Ben curates the music superbly and presents song and band names with that rich radio announcer voice of his. Truly a gem of a show. Spread the word and share what you love.
Philapeter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/19
Most music podcasts contain very little actual “music”, but instead are just people talking about music. This one is different in that it actually plays lots of great songs. It consists of a great mix of eclectic and obscure music. Almost every song is one that I’ve never heard before, but they...Read full review »

If you like truly eclectic popular music from the 50s 60s 70s and 80s, this is the show for you! This guys library is amazing, I don’t know how he has room to fit it all! Ben Vaughn is an amusing host with interesting stories about almost every song. Such an enjoyable listen. Every week I...Read full review »

I'm 18 years old and have grown up listening to Ben Vaughn's Many Moods every Saturday night on 88.5xpn. Hidden gems. Jerry Blavat is great tooRead full review »
Karl Supertramp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/18
I’ve been listening since he began with WXPN and learn something new, as well as re-discover forgotten music, at every episode. Can’t recommend enough.
Fat and Furious 65 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/31/17
Ben Vaughn has a collection few can ever assemble. The variety never bores me and the deep origins of many songs is educational at minimum. Sooo happy I can now podcast the ‘moods’!
Mark Glemser via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/17
I love that I can download this as a podcast and listen to it on my own schedule. Ben Vaughn's radio show is my favorite music podcast to listen to, and I look forward to listening every week.Read full review »

Ben has the best radio show on the dial. I look forward to that single hour each week with him playing things I love, things I've never heard and blending it together making it all somehow familiar. Great job!Read full review »

Best music going! What radio should be.
Robtbbb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/14
I have been playing the podcasts during our weekly poker game. It took a while but I think I have converted everyone. We are all in our sixties and spend time between hands guessing who the artist is. We all admit that some songs are locked in our conciousness from forty years ago and this is...Read full review »

This podcast gets me through just about anything. Ben Vaughn is the most talented radio DJ I have ever heard and a true gift to the people of Palm Springs!

My gal thought I was nuts to like music so much till we both listened to a Ben Vaughn show, Now she gets it!
willym62 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/13
I've been listening to the show on WXPN for about a year and I love it! It's a wonderful mix of music from the collection of a fun host and cool musician. The podcast lets me take it on the road and at work - the two places I need good music the most. give this show a listen!Read full review »

Amazing show, amazing music. Thanks, Ben!
Markus Naegele via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 12/16/12
I've always considered my musical tastes eclectic (and eccentric) but Ben never fails to play me something I never knew before. My (older) GF has even been converted (though she's not wild about punk, I just turn it down a bit for 2 minutes). I always had great respect for Ben as a...Read full review »

Thanks for the podcast Ben. Love the show but now I can catch it at any hour of the day. Your music selections have helped pull me through some tough shifts. Keep em coming and have a good tour this summer.
