Alligator Records Part 1 of 2: Building a Legendary Blues Record Label in Chicago, Illinois | Bruce Iglauer

So many firsts in this episode!

First time we have had music in the podcast.

First time the conversation was so good and so long that we had to break it up into two episodes.

How did Bruce get started as a record executive?

Why did he give Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys a guitar? 

What does Bruce think about the future of the music business?

All of this in this week’s episode.

Don’t forget to tune in next week for Part 2 to hear about how Bruce helped save a band from dying in a derailed train.
