The Great Albums
About the Podcast
Two indie rock musicians, Bill Lambusta and Brian Erickson, dive into the fandom of great rock and pop music and how it connects to their lives through the lens of the medium they care for most, the album. Episodes frequently include guest contributions from musicians, podcasters, and journalists and always culminate in a track by track review.
About the Host
Bill Lambusta & Brian Erickson
Bill Lambusta is the co-host of the Great Albums podcast and the person assigned the unenviable task of recording, mixing, and editing all the audio on a weekly basis. He grew into his love of rock and pop music during his formative years as a chubby teen at the Jersey Shore. Eventually, he became a musician himself, playing guitar and bass on releases for local bands Small Planet Radio, Bootstrap Bandits, and the Paper Jets. Currently, Bill lives with his wife Maureen, the lovable basset hound (and podcast mascot) Murray, and a demon of purr evil, Bam, in historic Bordentown, NJ. Brian is the co-host of the Great Albums podcast and our resident human encyclopedia for rock and pop music. As the proud owner of over 1000 compact discs, he is able to connect nearly any session musician, producer, or engineer with another artist in six degrees or less. Additionally, Brian fronts indie power pop outfit the Paper Jets. Active since 2008, the band has released 2 albums and an EP and embarked upon several tours that have covered the Great Lakes, the South, and the Northeast! When not podcasting or rocking the greater continental United States, Brian resides in a quiet suburban New Jersey hamlet with his two cats and a rabbit.
