    The Music Biz Weekly Podcast #64




    We've decided to do something a little different this week. Rather than talk about a very controversial topic in the music business that has reared it's ugly head again this week, we've chosen to jump the shark and just chat about some of the albums that shaped us into the people who we are today.

    Join myself, Brian Thompson, and Michael Brandvold for a 45 min. casual no-bullshit discussion on the Top 3 Albums that have changed each of our lives.
