Part 2 of our interview with Tom Petty record promoter Jon Scott. Thanks to Craig Rosen for setting this up for us. And thanks too to Phil Ingrassia for sitting in on this conversation.
It’s been a year since Tom Petty died. We honor his legacy with an interview we conducted shortly after that tragic event. Record promoter Jon Scott played an important role in bringing Petty’s music to the world. On this episode, he talks about getting into the record industry and a lesson he learned while promoting a Johnny Cougar album.
It’s a deck party! We look back at new music we discovered in July. Patrick was digging releases by Athens GA singer-songwriter Matthew Houck (who goes by Phosphorescent) and hip Brooklynites Bodega. We close out with a new music pick by longtime listener Adam Coop. He’s digging the previously unreleased, newly released single from Tom Petty.
Guest hosts Brett Motiff and Mike Snider of Vienna VA talk about music they grew up with, including Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Loverboy, the Rolling Stones and Tom Petty.
