The Sound Board #22: The Magical Musical Heist

Bank Vault Door

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is hosted by myself with support from Dr. Rob Levy and Prof. Tuffley.

This episode’s central topic is: the magical musical heist. What legendary, rare or potentially lost thing would we put a crew together and go steal if we thought we could get away with it? I’m sure we missed some–add your own ideas in the comments.

Plus we discuss the loss of Amy Winehouse, Michael Burston, Facundo Cabral and Manuel Galban. We discuss the state of the music business. Yes, again. Where does Spotify and other digital services fit into this mess? Why are album sales down? We reflect on MTV turning 30 and Lollapalooza turning 20 and share some memories of both entities. Plus some other random bits of musical geekery and knowledge thrown in and seasoned to taste.

  • The entire time, you guys were talking about the early days of MTV, I couldn’t get that Dead Kennedys song out of my head out of my head. You know which one I mean!
