The Sound Board #29: Two Tickets to Paradise (Plus Service Charges)

Admit One Tickets

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode stars Dr. Rob Levy in the chair with Prof. Tuffley and Widge providing backup.

This episode’s central topic is…ticket purchasing for live music events. Why is it such a pain in the ass? Also we remember Levon Helm, Earl Scruggs and Dick Clark. We talk Axl Rose vs. The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, Weird Al vs. his label and Courtney Love vs. reality. Also, we check in with Record Store Day to see how it’s holding up.

  • Wit hall due respect, Bob Stewart (who also recently passed) created The $25,000 Pyramid. Dick Clark hosted the show, and his role in the success of the show can not be denied, but he did not create the show.

  • Pyramid was under the umbrella of Dick Clark productions and he received residuals as the show creator up until his death. Stewart basically took the concept Clark and his production team had and fleshed it out. Clark still oversaw the show after he let as host.

  • Thanks for the clarification. It seems many game shows have multiple parents. I should have known Dick Clark was more “hands on ” in the process, since that was his modus operandi.
    That’s not necessarily a bad thing, because when your name is all over the project, you are the person usually held responsible for the success or failure of the project. Dick Clark, when his name was tied to a project, wanted to make sure he did everything in his power for the project to work out to his satisfaction.
