What are you doing every Wednesday night at 8pm?  Here’s what you should be doing – listening to MusicBiz 101 & More, the weekly radio show about all things Music (& Entertainment) Biz, hosted by William Paterson University professors Dr. Stephen Marcone and David Philp.


1.  “Um, how do I hear it?”

If you’re in Northern New Jersey, turn your FM dial to 88.7.  That’s how you can listen via good old fashioned terrestrial radio.  You’ll have the beautiful voices of Professors Marcone and Philp, plus a special industry guest/WPU faculty member, and student co-host waft through your eardrums (no charge!).

Now, you might not be in Northern New Jersey.  Or, quite possibly, you are but you’re out of range (or, out of habit, you don’t listen to over-the-air radio).  If that’s the case, you can stream the show LIVE!  Yes, that’s right.  We’re that cool.  To be cool like us, just click HERE.

We’ve interviewed both Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of Run DMC and Mark Goodman, original MTV VJ, although not at the same time, in Spring, 2017.

John “JK” Kennedy, tour manager of The Smithereens, sat in on a stupendous show in March, 2020.

2.  Why Should I Listen?

Because there isn’t another show like it anywhere en Los Estados Unidos.  This is the go-to show to hear all about:

  • How to make money in the Music & Entertainment biz
  • What Publishing is and how it affects you
  • How do I start my own label?
  • When do I need a lawyer?
  • What if my band breaks up?
  • When is it legal, or not, to sample beats?
  • How do I get a job in the biz?
  • Where can I learn all of this stuff?

We’ll answer these questions, and more, over the course of this weekly one-hour show.

  1. Hey guys,
    I love your podcast. Great guests and insight. I listen to it regularly.

    I’d like to nominate myself as a potential guest. I was at Live Nation and Ticketmaster for 11 years managing digital for U2, Sting, The Who, Tom Petty, Bob Seger, Slayer and many others. Check out my site – so, my area of expertise is managing artist official digital for some of the biggest artists in the world.

    If there is any interest, hit me back. Bless you!
