Love this podcast! It always takes me back to a specific place and time. The boys do a great job bringing the truth when it comes to some of the tunes that fall into the top ten. Keep it up!!!
It’s not that I'm anti-podcast; it's just that I almost never listen to them. Still, when I came across the 9/2/21 episode of the Top 10 Time Machine, I thought I'd give it a five-minute whirl. I have especially fond musical memories from 1984 and was curious to see what songs would come up. Plus, I know Dave and admire his MC skills and pop culture prowess. I thought Dave and Milt were terrific. To my own surprise, I listed to the nearly 2 hour episode straight through. Dave and Milt opined impressively about the songs’ quality, backstories and their place in musical/pop culture then and now. But even better, they talked about the feeling or vibe (good or bad) the songs evoked - that's a hard thing to capture, and especially glorious when it resonates. Here's the best thing. As a heard Missing You, Lets Go Crazy, She Bop, the Warrior and the rest, and listened to Dave and Milt’s banter about them, I started remembering my 14 year old self when these songs were part of my summer of 1984 soundtrack; where I was, what I was doing, who I was with, and especially how those songs made me feel at the time. What at trip!
I stumbled upon your podcast recently and am now going back and listening to all past episodes in order. Love going back in time to the past and reliving memories and seeing which songs still hold up and which don't.
Absolutely love this podcast! Especially enjoyed this week’s episode, in which Milt and Dave finally come around to the saccharine-sweet and maudlin genius that is Air Supply. Clearly a supergroup that was way ahead of its time and a true dominitzing force. Milt and Dave are pop culture savants, with perfect chemistry and hilarious banter that make pod magic out of nothing at all. With each episode these guys take me right back to my college years and somehow make me feel as if I’ve known them forever. Brings up great memories of leafing through my CD collection and spending countless hours listening to great music. 5 Stars!
...of expertise, fun, engaging banter, self-deprecation. Super music knowledge, reminded of tunes I’ve missed and tunes I wish I had missed altogether. And they avoid the too common podcast perils of unfocused and smugness. Keep up the fine work guys!
Discovering Past 10s podcast is much like finding about a new band after the release of their 3rd album. How did I miss this and where have I been? David and Michael have created a vehicle that cleverly allows for a fresh and unique look back at different eras of music that feels so familiar and welcomed. Nostalgic definitely but also very interesting. The podcasts are well produced, researched and funny. Highly recommended!
I came to the podcast after week 5 and thought it to be the most cynical thing I had ever heard. Maybe I was the cynical one. I enjoy the look back that Milt and Dave provide. When the throw out subtleties In their conversation that is when they are the best. They don’t believe it but a really good podcast to run to as well.
Great tunes, interesting repartee, intriguing back stories; these guys are worth a listen.
This podcast makes me laugh every time, and these guys have gotten better each time out.
This show is amazing! I started listening late, but I’m almost caught up now. The rapport between hosts Dave and Milt is palpable. You can tell they have a deep friendship and a history with listening to much of the music that winds up on these top 10 lists. Keep up the good work, guys!

Highly recommend for those who want to learn more about music, the artists behind the music, and be entertained in the process. Dave and Milt are hysterical!
Love, love, love this show. Like a time machine back to the countdown days. And oh by the way, this 80’s-obsessed listener used to keep a notebook of Casey Casey’s weekly countdowns and related stats like “Biggest Mover in the Countdown” and “Remake”. Also love that you guys do some research (or are just cursed with insane memories of trivial entertainment news and nuggets) to dissect the songs and artists themselves. Thank you for bringing me back. In the words of Eddie Money, “I Wanna Go Back”!...
Love, love, LOVE this podcast! Michael (“Milt”) and David are so knowledgeable and have great chemistry and banter. They say things I am thinking! I am a big fan of the flux capacitor and all of their other pop culture references. This podcast really brings me back and their sometimes obscure, sometimes inappropriate (in a good way), sometimes self-deprecating, always hilarious commentary puts me in a great mood with every episode. Keep Reelin’ in the Years guys!
Each podcast surfaces a musical moment in time that makes me smile. The commentary makes me laugh. Hard. Wonderful interplay. Always enjoy the notification another episode is waiting. Keep it going!!
I love this show! Milt and Dave really know their stuff and I always learn a new fact or two about an ol’ skool artist. As a loyal Casey Kasem weekly listener in the 80’s this podcast is a great facsimile of a kinder, gentler time when all we had was the radio and MTV. A must listen for all music fans!
A trip down music memory lane with lots of fun trivia and commentary. I look forward to new episodes!
Super fun listen with a car full of people. Recommended for teens and up - as they go a bit PG13 with the commentary. These guys have us laughing, singing and reminiscing in a way that make the time fly...
Found this podcast when looking for something a little different, and could not have been more pleased. The two hosts are great together and I find myself laughing out loud during each episode. Looking forward to more!
As a big music fan, I really enjoyed this pod. Great info and trivia about the songs in the Top Ten for July 1976 (the top 5 songs are not to be believed). Dave and Milt have a great rapport-I felt like I was hanging with old friends. Looking forward to future episodes!
