Greg Aidala joins the show and we literally have tea together. If you don’t know him, he is the most well-known comedian from Albany, NY; and we go to Professor Java’s, a local coffee house and talk the local comedy scene, and how he got his start as an entertainer. He is a positive, earnest guy who got to where he is by working for it, and he’s done a lot to make people aware of comedy in the Albany area, and we have a bit of an intimate chat about his success. You can check out Greg at http://www.gregaidala.com, follow him on Twitter @GregAidala and come check him out with comedian Moody McCarthy April 21 at Holiday Inn Express in Latham, NY!
Gina Ree reeturns to the show to talk about the music biz, and her latest
venture, Music Inkorporated, in the first international episode! Gina
quizzes me on music, and I get everything right! We discuss the role of the
music label in the post internet landscape. What is the business of music
turning into? What kind of role does technology take in our collective
choices on music? We discuss the Grammy awards and the difference between
performers and musicians. Then we shift gears like conspiracy freaks and
discuss public school history class and the lack of the foreign teachings.
And then we talk politics and the health care debate.Then we go back to her
reasons behind coming up with her MusicInkorporated.com business, and what
she’s looking to do for musicians and entrepreneurs. What happened to rock
music? Gina then gives me a great compliment and I reveal a secret. Listen
