A nostalgic blast from my childhood/Revamping one of the greatest radio shows
This podcast is worth listening too. If you ever remember the radio station 99x in Atlanta, you remember the morning show with Barnes, Leslie, and Jimmy. (Sorry Cubby). From producing such awesome records as the Live X cds(always one of my favorite Christmas gifts and wish there was a way to get them digitally) to the morning celebrity sleaze, it not only gave my parents and I something to talk about on the way to school, but played such quality music my parents didn’t hate my music. Please keep on the show and keep up the good work!

I really didn’t want to like this show bc the last thing I needed was another podcast to try and fit in every week. But my nostalgia for the Morning X eagerly brought me to the Pop Culture Show and it does not disappoint. The commentary, the dynamics between Barnes , Leslie and Cubby, and the weekly content are so relatable. You laugh, you will roll your eyes and you will joyfully yell expletives at Cubby. Go ahead and subscribe.... you know you want to.

For me, this podcast shines because of the chemistry between the hosts. No solo superstar ranting. No trying to be the next whatever. Just cool talk about current topics, and really good host chemistry - something that cannot be faked or manufactured.

Weekly Laughs
I’m so enjoying The Pop Culture podcast. Great for a weekly laugh. Plus a good place to find out what is new in the Entertainment world (movies, music, Netflix and general cool stuff) each week. Plus I get to listen to Leslie and Barnes again along with a new (for me) host Cubby.
Mondays. Made.
This was on my top 5 list for 2020, and it’s easy to see why. Barnes, Leslie and Cubby have a fabulous rapport and it’s really like chatting with friends about all things pop culture (and, as someone who’s been working from home since March, being able to “discuss” music, bingeable TV and celebrities with them had helped make my Monday - and work week - much more enjoyable.) They give good interview and have given me some great music/TV recommendations. Really a must-listen for pop culture aficionados and anyone who wants a laugh or many.

Return to the voices of the 90’s...
As a teen in the 90’s, The Morning X was my introduction to morning radio shows. The voices of Barnes, and Leslie take me back to some of the best times in my teens to mid-twenties! I love Leslie’s Celebrity Sleaze bits and I love the guest spots each week. I wasn’t familiar with Cubby previously, but I’ve got to say he is the perfect add to the Barnes and Fram duo. I look forward to this podcast weekly! From tips on tech and behind the scenes adventures, and Netflix binge worthy recommendations - this is a fantastic show for anyone interested in the world of pop culture and keeping up with the times! My only request - and I think it’s a long shot....can we have more than one episode a week????

A must listen...
I’ve listened to Steve Barnes and Leslie Fram for years. They are two of my all time favorite entertainment personalities. And are really good people. With the addition of Cubby, these three come together each week to share interesting, fun, & entertaining shows. This show is well worth saving to your favorites. 😎
Welcome back!
I’ve thought about this show always and I miss when I’m subjected to subpar morning drives. Finally a podcast! and a forever way to listen to and pick up with a show that is well done! Keep up the good work. Honest, always funny, current and relevant, all that’s missing is discovering new rock which really hasn’t been getting done for a while now. But glad this show is back! More frequent Jimmy!
Missed them/love them
So great to hear my fav radio group back again and Cubby fits in perfectly. Love it when they talk about their lives and past stories with rock bands back in the day, but also love the interviews.
Best podcast!
So glad you guys are back!
Best pop culture podcast
Best pop culture podcast out there! Always great with new, original content.
So glad to have them back!!
The morning x is one of the best podcasts. Especially if they were a big part of your life in the 90’s in Atlanta.
Can’t get enough!
I grew up listening to the Morning X and LOVED every second of them. Now to have them back has been SO great. Huge fan of Barnes, Leslie, Jimmy, Crash and then Toucher when he joined later. Have truly enjoyed the podcasts. Look forward to finding out the new name and new cohost.
Best Pop Culture Podcast I’ve heard
Funny. Interesting. Unpredictable. I look forward to this every week!
My new favorite podcast
The Morning X was the first morning radio show that I ever loved. So happy to have Barnes and Leslie back in my life! They made my quarantine. Great podcast for those in ATL and beyond!
Atlanta radio legends.
A throwback to the good old days, with a contemporary focus on pop culture. A must listen.
Takes me back!
I loved the Morning X and listened religiously back in the 90s. This is a trip down memory lane and really enjoy their camaraderie. I’ve moved away from Atlanta but I still enjoy hearing about my city. ❤️ you guys!
I AM 99X
I have been a loyal 99X listener since 1992 when it was changed over from Power 99. Sean, Leslie, and Jimmy were a great morning show for the first couple of years but when Steve joined it was the heavenly match. From their infamous April 1st jokes, to the interviews, Live X shows, and great contest they raised the bar for alternative music stations and morning shows forever. These three will forever be a part of me and this podcast is a trip back to the Atlanta radio greatness. Thank you all again Barnes, Leslie, and Jimmy. -Don Mosley

The Morning X with Barnes, Leslie & Jimmy. Reliving the best radio years of my life from the ORIGINAL 99X in Atlanta. We are all a bit older now, but the familiar voices take me back to what radio used to be, GREAT! What a gift to have them together again!
