Upcoming events:

Saturday, July 28th, 11am - 1pm: Seymour Stein of Sire Records
Michael chats with Seymour Stein about his new autobiography "Siren Song My Life In Music" which recounts the 60 year career of "America's greatest living record man" with great stories about the record business characters that crossed his path and the artists that he's signed, including: The Ramones, The Talking Heads, The Pretenders, The Replacements, The Flamin' Groovies, The Smiths, etcetera etcetera.

Saturday, August 4th, 11am - 1pm: John Noreen of The Rose Garden
Michael chats with John Noreen about his time in The Rose Garden, who while John was still a teen went from rehearsing in his L.A. bedroom to being signed to ATCO Records. Along the way the band crossed paths with Neil Young, Gene Clark, Sonny Bono and other characters tangential to the swinging L.A. scene. Described as a melding of The Byrds and The Mama's and the Papa's, they were short lived, but long remembered, mostly for their 1967 single “Last Plane To London,” a #17 hit.

Saturday, August 18th, 11am - 1pm: Brett Berns director of "BANG! The Bert Berns Story"
Michael welcomes Brett Berns, director of "BANG! The Bert Berns Story" which tells the story of the creative force Bert Berns, whose childhood bout with rheumatic fever left him with a short life expectancy which inspired his prolific creative output. His mort successful run was a seven year period in the 60's where he had a hand in 51 charting singles. He died in 1967 at age 38 and left behind a safe full of cash and a musical legacy that includes "A Little Bit Of Soap," "Hang On Sloopy," "I Want Candy," "Under The Boardwalk" and work with Solomon Burke, Van Morrison, Erma Franklin, The Isley Brothers, Wilson Pickett, Ben E. King and tons more.
