    What a fun experience. Aaron gave me the gift of reflection upon a lifetime defined by music. Choosing three songs proved daunting. My "favorite" artists are not represented in my choices. Rather, the songs selected defined or reflected history and cultural developments that were swirling around the world and, in many cases, were influenced by the artists through their music. Of course, there is the one that I admit resonated deeply in my soul as I was navigating the transition from adolescent student to real life's challenges and opportunities yet to come. I encourage all who listen to these episodes to jump in. It will be enlightening for you as well as your family and friends. Thank you again, Aaron, for the opportunity to think out loud! You rock.

    I had so much fun doing this podcast, As a wannabe radio disc jockey, talking about music is a blast. It was such an interesting exercise to think about why I so liked my song selections. Aaron not only was a terrific interviewer, his insights into the songs in ways I hadn't thought of actually deepened my enjoyment of songs I already loved. If you're wondering if this would be a fun thing to do – it would be a fun thing to do. Go for it!

    It was a real joy to be on Aaron's show. He is all good things in an interviewer: insightful, informed, enthusiastic, naturally encouraging in his positivity, and a delightfully witty companion when the chat slips into banter. I reached far back through the years for my eclectic collection of songs to feature (back before even the time when Aaron was born!) – but he engaged my selection with the same lively interest as he would for a set list of, say, Madonna, John Legend, and Randy Travis! What fun it was!

    Aaron is such a gracious host! We had a wonderful time as guests on his show. You should try it, too and submit your three songs!

    I had a blast on Aaron's Radio Show discussing and listening to "My Three Songs" with the host Aaron Gobler. I was a bit nervous before we started and Aaron lightened the mood and made me feel comfortable to speak. Afterwards it was so fun to listen and share the episode with friends. Great experience!

    This was so much fun to do – especially because Aaron does the interview over Zoom, with the camera off, so you don't have to wash or even comb your hair. We all have a list of meaningful, memorable songs that we love – the only hard part is narrowing it down to three. So think hard, fill out the form on this site, and get yourself on this show to let the world know about the songs that you can't live without.

    Aaron has a friendly, open interview style, and a pleasant voice. His love of music is apparent, knowledge of music is extensive, and his kindness and generosity reflected in his voice. You can tell by his commentary that he does research on the three songs that guests choose before the actual interview. Sometimes we identify music that he has not heard of. I enjoyed chatting with Aaron about the meaning of music in my life. He only knows me from a zoom exercise class I was in with him and a few others last year, yet the interview sounded like he was interviewing a friend by his genuine interest in the reasons behind my chosen songs. As other guests attest to, it was hard to pick three songs and develop a short story about their meanings, but the experience was delightful. I also enjoy listening to Aaron's interviews of other guests, their duration aligns with my walks so I usually get to finish listening to the entire interview, listen to music, and reminisce.

    I had such a great time on Aaron's Radio Show talking about My Three Songs. Aaron did a very good job of setting expectations and framework of how everything would go. You can tell how much Aaron loves music while speaking with him. It's fun to share music with others. I encourage all music fans to join the show.

    I really enjoyed talking with my brother about my three favorite songs. We have a lot of similar tastes so I was curious to hear his thoughts on my choices. I so appreciate Aaron’s broad knowledge of popular music from recent decades and his interviews support that breadth and depth. It’s fascinating to learn about his guests’ choices and the stories of their lives and where the music fits in those histories. Rock on…..

    It is such an interesting exercise to choose three songs — and only three songs — and then think about why they made the cut. Aaron is such a skillful interviewer. He put me at ease right away, and the conversation just flowed. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you, Aaron!

    The whole process - from my three song choices to being interviewed by Aaron was deeply moving and meaningful to me. Music has always been a part of my life but this experience summarized the power of music for me. Aaron is a gifted interviewer. I love the show.

    If you’re into music, I mean really into music, this radio show is for you. How cool to really explain what 3 songs means to you in detail.

    Fun fun fun. Talking with Aaron about songs is incredibly fun, but music is really the conduit for conversations about life. Aaron is a great emcee for conversations. It’s a real talent and a pleasure.

    I enjoyed doing my first podcast with Aaron, who put me at ease right away. It is always wonderful to discuss music and what it means to so many people. It is an international language and adds beauty to the world. The song selections and reasons for the choosing are very interesting. It was a great experience, and I recommend it.

    Aaron did a great job in advance of the interview to let me know what would happen on the show and the type of questions he would ask. The interview went smoothly and was fun to do, and Aaron helped create a relaxed, enjoyable mood for me to chat with him. He also gave me the opportunity to listen to the interview before he posted it so that I could offer my suggested edits (which he used btw). Overall, it was a lot of fun to share my reflections on my three songs. I really liked the resulting podcast.

  • Mina Gobler

    What a wonderful push to look back and think about the role music has played in my life! Selecting just three songs requires your selections to be meaningful and have emotional connections! I'm so happy I participated, and I'm even happier to know that so many people actually listened to and enjoyed my interview.

Also, please enjoy the back catalog of ten hour-long episodes I produced from March through June 2021.

About Me
I’ve been enjoying music since I was an infant in the cradle and I distinctly recall the music I heard at age 5 when I listened to WFIL 560 AM in Philadelphia. I’ve been an avid music collector of 45’s, then LPs, dance remix 12″s, and MP3 files for as long as I’ve had money to spend on them! I’ve disc jockeyed at parties, and at bars, and am thrilled to bring my passion and excitement about music to you through my radio show.

Please take a listen and share your thoughts, ideas, critiques, encouragement, or questions through the comment form below!

Yes and no. If you wish to listen to shows that are interview-based (i.e., currently episodes 11 and beyond) with music included, you will need to stream the show from this website. If you want to listen to an interview-based episode over one of the popular podcast services, you will only hear the interview, but no liscensed music. Check out the Podcast Page, search for the show on your favorite podcast platform, or use the set of podcast links.

Who is that speaking at the very top of the show?
I was lucky enough to get the great James White (of Vine fame) to record an opening for my show. If you are not familiar with James White, check out this short reel of his entries on Vine.
What kind of music can I expect?

The show will primarily include music from the 50’s through today, mostly mainstream and pop music by artists most listeners have heard of.

You are encouraged to use the contact form (below) to share the names of songs you would like included. I’ll contact you for more information, and likely record your voice to add to the show.

What makes the show stand out from others?

The theme for most episodes will be a stroll down memory lane of songs that were poignant for me during my life, or that I grew attached to for various other reasons. I’ve been listening to music since I was an infant and distinctly remember listening to WFIL AM in Philadelphia when I was in Kindergarten. I did professional DJ work while in college, and for several small gigs since college. I have a lot of music trivia stored up in my head!
