Amps & Axes - Podcast Sweeps Week

Mr. Joe Barden Parts 1 - 5

Well, here you go AaA Fans. It's Podcast Sweeps Week and we have a week for the record books! It's a story we believe hasn't been covered yet and felt that it was about time someone documented the rise of this company and its founder. You know the product and if you're a fan you know that some of Rock and Roll's biggest acts found these to be a ground breaking and indispensable tool in their music making arsenal. Please join us as we bring you this 5 part series on the history of Joe Barden Pickups as told by the man himself, Mr Joe Barden. Enjoy and Thanks for Listening, Jeff & Mick
