Notes:

Over a year ago, the world lost beloved musician Tom Petty. In an exclusive two-part interview, Jim and Patrick sat down with the record promoter who played a role in bringing Petty into the limelight, Jon Scott.

In part one, Jon talks about getting into the record industry and a lesson he learned while promoting a John Mellencamp album.

Thanks to Craig Rosen for setting up the interview.
