It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about This Week In Music. I’ve been so busy I just haven’t had time to keep updating the blog with info on each episode. I hope you’ve been keeping up, Esteemed Producer Will and I have been really proud of our recent episodes. Check out the most recent show with Brian Klein for a taste of the music business to come. I’m in awe of people like Brian and I find a real hopefulness about the future of the business when I talk to him; instead of talking about how it *was*, he talks about how it *is* and where hard work can get you.

Wow. That’s a lot of stuff since I last blogged about the show. Please get caught up!
We’ve been dark for a couple of weeks as This Week In is currently moving their studio from Santa Monica to Culver City and I’ve been traveling (Nashville last weekend, writing you from Boulder, CO this weekend — HAPPY 40TH RYAN MCINTYRE!). But we’re jumping back in this week with some great stuff, including an interview with the worldwide head of digital at Universal Music Group, Rob Wells, a world premiere of a killer video from Kina Grannis broadcast live on YouTube, and an interview with MOG‘s David Hyman live from the New Noise Santa Barbara Conference.
In fact, we’d love it if you’d join us in person for the discussion with David. It will be live at New Noise Santa Barbara on Saturday November 5th. New Noise SB is a great boutique conference of less than 200 people in an incredible setting. Please come and join in the conversation. Let your voice be heard!
