I have been listening to a LOT of John Batchelor podcasts the last week or so and he is once again close to the top of the radio shows I enjoy. The last one I listened to was an 8 part interview with the author of a book about the battle of Gettysburg. A very facinating two hours about something I thought I knew a lot about. If you are into history and love someone that does outstanding interviews, find a station that airs his show or find it on iHeartRadio.
I agree, Dan Johnson from Standard Tobacco told me about JB... he is the best thing on radio.

A bit blasmephous to some, since I am big on jazz, but I never enjoyed listening to Coltrane for too long. Most of the listening I done was to understand and appreciate his legacy. I found McCoy Tyner this way, one of my favorite pianists.
I'd much rather listen to Hank Mobley, Sonny Stitt, or Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Pharaoh Sanders... if feeling more adventurous Coltrane is definitely one of a kind though.
