Music Podcasts >

This is going to be a podcast about the music business experience as a whole. I’ll be interviewing musicians, managers, gear creators and gear heads, educators, and writers in an attempt to both entertain and educate. Often times we only get to see the end product with all of these folks, and I feel that by hearing their stories, their advice, and their ideas of success and failure …that we can de-mystify the path, a bit, and hopefully take something from their words for ourselves either as advice or as entertainment.
