    Dude, You Rock.

    • Thanks Sheala! I’m glad you like it.

      I shall try to continue doing this “rock” thing that you seem to think I am doing!

  • JBel

    This is so great. I just love how you set it up for us to actually listen to the episode to understand whats going on. Is this how we can lure free feeds to go Primo? Either way, great site Darryl, good visuals and I can finally see the Yellow Bag that makes it so bad.

    • Thanks tons, JBel!

      You’ve caught on to part of my scheme! I’m trying to make the notes entertaining in themselves, plus interesting to those who have heard the whole episode, but also intriguing enough to maybe encourage a few non-Primos to wonder what they are missing.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying it. I really want the notes to help people get even more enjoyment out of the show.

    Just wanted to echo all of the other comments on this site – Darryl, you’re doing an amazing job with these! I love listening to the episodes again with your show notes in front of me so I can catch all the stuff. Makes me sound like a total nerd, I know, haha. Thanks again for this site, keep up the good work!
