Music Biz Going To Music Biz In Music City

Your Music Biz 101 & More radio show is pleased as punch to announce that it’s going on the road to the May, 2016 Music Business Association convention in Nashville, Tennessee.  The 2016 event will take place from May 16 – May 18 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.  In a moment, we’ll copy and paste a blurb about the Music Biz event.  Then, you’ll see a hot blurb about the Music Biz 101 & More radio show.  But first, how is this a-goin’ to work?

Music Biz 2016 Nashville


This Nashville road trip will be part of a summer session class led by Music Biz 101 & More co-hosts Doc Steve Marcone and Professor David Kirk Philp (look at the pic above to see their pretty faces).  Marcone/Philp and a group of William Paterson University students will record interviews with Music Biz show attendees.  Each interview will be edited by students for airing during the summer on WPSC: Brave New Radio and/or as exclusive podcasts on the Music Biz 101 & More network.  

This trip is exclusive to William Paterson University undergrad and MBA students who have taken the pre-requisite class, Survey of the Music & Entertainment Industry, in the spring, 2016 semester.

 Budgeting, routing, and the booking of interviews will all be done by WP students.  

That’s how it’s a-gonna work
