Like sweet tea on a hot day

By Wren D - Mar 25 2019

Fielders folksy style and gentle demeanor make me feel like I’m visiting kin folk and asking garden advice. He knows his stuff but let’s others keep their own opinions. I listen and I’m in a totally different climate but just relax when I hear Felders show. 5 stars.

Great show!
