Discussion: How did we get into Deep Purple?

  • Why are we doing this podcast?
    • There aren’t any other podcasts!  Why? There are tons on other bands.  Maybe no one out there is interested in a Deep Purple podcast and that’s why none exist.  Either way there are two possible outcomes:
      • 1. ) People will appreciate this and want to enjoy more of it or
      • 2.) we get to explore our love of Deep Purple every week and no one listens.  Either way we win!
  • To get a chance to catch up on the band!
    • There’s lots by the band that I have yet to explore and this will give me a great opportunity to do just that.
  • What is your history with the band as a fan?
    • When did you first hear of the band or what really caught your attention and made you want to learn more.

The Deep Purple Podcast

Coming soon we will be taking a critical look at the music, people, and history of Deep Purple and their extended family of amazing musicians.

Why now? Well, I was looking around for a podcast on Deep Purple and was amazed that there weren’t any! I contacted my good friend and fellow Deep Purple fan, John, and asked if he’d be interested.

Episodes coming soon!
