Apple Podcasts Reviews:

  • FrankTheilgaardMortensen
  • From Denmark – 5 STARS!
  • My favorite Podcast of all time!
  • The Deep Purple Podcast is by far the best podcast I’ve heard! I love the band and all the solo-outputs, projects etc. In this setting we get tons of information about the many Deep Purple and related albums/releases – and all in the company with the great hosts/friends Nate and John. If you like Purple you need to check this out! If you like music you must check this out. They deserve the 5 STARS and if you love this show like me, then you can become a patreon and support this show. Nate and John has been my friends for the last couple of years, they just don’t know it
