Geeks & Beats Episode 21 Now Available (Show Notes, Too)

If I sound a little out of it on this week’s podcast, it’s because I had to get up at 5:45 PT after a long trip to Los Angeles that didn’t get me into my hotel room until after 1am PT. 

Nevertheless, the show must go on.  Download the episode here, stream it here or grab it from iTunes.

Ask Alan Anything 

Darren from Calgary, ab – what’s the deal with royalties and how much revenue do some of these classic albums like St. Peppers, U2’s War, make?

Co-Producer Dan Lynch.  Thank you!   Dan lives in Uxbridge Ontario and is a general contractor. Does a beautiful job in particular with kitchens and cabinets. I’m not sure how he found out about the show. He told me about it. He’s a long time music fan, loved CFNY from the old days. Loves to see live music. He (his family) has a miniature schnauzer named Abby.  He is a beer connoisseur and enjoys a nice nip of Jameson’s (liquid courage) on the golf course.
