Welcome to One Hit Wanderer! My name’s Evan, and this is my podcast. One Hit Wanderer is a podcast for music lovers. I love music: what it means, what it does, how we interact with it. Every episode of the show will be me, maybe some friends, talking through a favorite song without infringing on any copyright laws, to the best of my ability. DISCLAIMER: A streaming service would be beneficial if you listen to this show. Thanks for checking us out!

Just Evan (we're working on it) takes a look at a "pop" song to break up the jog through the oldies. We look at the importance of having an eclectic library, what can be done about relationship woes, and how hopeless it is to be a hopeless romantic in the 21st century.
