“We really got a lot of views for the first,” said Thornton, who co-hosts with Gidley. “It will be better. That was our process. This is more of yogie’s territory. She’s trying to push me out of there. ”

“The podcast is about a lot of OGs, as I call them here,” said Gidley. “Not just in Montgomery, but in the surrounding counties as well.”

Gidley said they are also putting the spotlight on the work behind the scenes in the music business.

“It was really cool to see how it goes behind the scenes,” said Thornton.

Gidney and Thornton work together to find guests for upcoming shows. “She knows a lot and I know a lot,” said Thornton.

The second episode on Wednesday will feature Birmingham producer Bennie Hurst, Beat Champ and artist B-hold da General. The following week, DJ, the DJ for Yo! 100.5 Classic Jamz radio in Montgomery.
