#BG - Michel Tio [HORR]
Michel wore many many hats within whilst at Roadrunner Records in the late 80's/90's, mostly fiscal and core label administrative roles - all of which sit firmly within my wheelhouse.
Consider this a 'business' exploration into Roadrunner at that time, similar to the Richard Bengloff and Stefan Koster episodes.
#BF - Marc G with a C [HORR]
Marc is a collector of disgraceful and heavy antiquities, among which is a sizeable array of thrash and death metal records.
Marc talks me thorugh his experience with Roadrunner Records from the perspective of a budding young metalhead in the late 80's / early 90's.
#BE - Robb Flynn [Machine Head] [HORR]
Robb Flynn tells the story of Machine Head's journey with Roadrunner Records, all the way from the bands inception through to the Red Wedding in 2012.
#BD - Howie Abrams (Part 2) [Director of A&R] [HORR]
CORRECTION - at 6:40 ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=400s&v=FrUGbryhzzw ) I say RCA, when it should be MCA. Not YMCA, just MCA. Cheers Monte.
Howie was the first person I spoke to on this project (#J on the audio-only version of this pod), so it made sense to revisit his tenure with a (slightly) more developed understanding of Roadrunner in the 90s.
#BC - Ray Garcia [SVP Business Affairs (US)] [HORR]
Ray joined Roadrunner in 1999, and went straight into the front lines of the business, arranging deals with artists, and handling some of the back office functionality.
We talk about Ray's time with the label, the day-to-day operations in Business Affairs, and some of the unique qualities the Roadrunner wore as a business as it moved through the 21st Century.
#BB - Joel McIver [HORR]
Joel is possibly one of the more prolific music authors of the past few decades. He has written 34 books and has also rendered services to the music journalism world during this period - it's very difficult to be a rock/metal fan and not come across his name.
So who better to carry me through the world of Roadrunner through the eyes of a professional commentator, biographer, and observer!
