Best of Soundtrack Series 2013

Posted on December 19, 2013 by Dana

It’s the best of Soundtrack Series for 2013! Eight of our favorite stories from our shows in New York and Austin this year. Jean Grae, Ken Caillat, Bob Khosravi, James Bewley, Kennedy, Holly Lorka, Mark Douglas and Bill Stephney tell us all a thing or two–like the allure of 12 CDs for a penny. Or how hard it was to get BET to play the video for “Going Back to Cali.” Or what music and television were like in early 90s Iran. Or why a ukulele might be safer than a guitar. Or that time Rumours was made.

Holy crap this was fun.
