Jack Forsythe - Chrysalis Records (Season 2 Episode 18)
This has become one of my new favorite episodes with Jack Forsythe who went from radio to Record World (Industry trade magazine) to VP of Chrysalis Records.
Jack is a fabulous storyteller so we kept bouncing from one band to another but you will hear stories about Pat Benatar who was called the kamikaze of love to Huey Lewis & the News, Billy Idol, and his shenanigans, and of course Blondie.
Jack's stories were so good we will have him back to tell us many more. But only in the podcast, you will hear a story about how Jethro Tull beat out Metallica for a Heavy Metal Grammy award. Promotion Man Radio show is available to listen live on www.KLBJFM.com at 6 pm CST every Sunday Night. Request the show at your local classic rock radio station.
