Wang Chung (yes that Wang Chung) and the future of the oldies, ever hear of a used mp3 market, me neither, how tech helps groups from days gone by keep making music as good as or better than before, Music 3.0 what is it and what does it mean (maybe what goes around does eventually comes around again), touring and how important that is to an artist and why we feel ripped off, 3348 and just how fast they went away and what is the one thing all bands need now and why this is a good job opportunity for you, is the web really dead, apps and how important they will be for your band, why Andrew wants us to link to this author and a give away for one lucky listener plus a whole lot more.
