Not Fade Away Podcast

The Not Fade Away podcast is back and have we got a hell of a subject today--Jerry Garcia. The eternal hippie/hipster believed in seeking truth and enlightenment above all else. When Jerry passed on August 9, 1995, just a week after his 53rd birthday, he left behind a 30+ year legacy of music, poetry, art, groovy ties, and ice cream that are still talked about to this day. (25th Anniversary of his death)

Not Fade Away Podcast

The Not Fade Away podcast is back and I am so excited to talk about today’s subject--the Altamont concert that took place on December 6, 1969. It was supposed to be a showcase by the Rolling Stones to demonstrate their ability to draw an even bigger crowd than the Woodstock festival which took place in August of that year.

Episode 7: Author and Music Industry Veteran Dorothy Carvello

Anything For a Hit: An A&R Woman’s Story of Surviving the Music Industry

 

Hey there! Hi There! Ho there!

The Not Fade Away podcast is back and I am thrilled to interview Dorothy Carevllo, author of “Anything For a Hit: An A&R Woman’s Story of Surviving the Music Industry” for this episode. Dorothy is a 30+ year veteran of the music industry starting out as the assistant of Ahmet Ertegun who was the co-founder and president of Atlantic Records and wowzers--has she got some tea to spill!

I first read about Dorothy in this interview from The New York Times discussing the possibility of the music industry one day having a #MeToo movement naming sexual harassers and batterers. While that has not seemed to be happening right now, Dorothy’s book might very well plant the seeds for it to occur sooner than later. (One would hope!)

In this ep (and graciously answered all of my questions with honesty and integrity) we discuss:

  • How the Brooklyn native with no contacts in the industry found her first job with Ahmet Ertegun (and the various abuses he put upon her)
  • What it is was like to be a woman in the free-wheeling 80s and 90s music industry where men behaved badly with no consequences (and how it affected her career)
  • Her favorite band successes and the ones that got away
  • The income disparity that still exists in the business world and how it affected her financial stability
  • Why she chose to name names of the various men she worked with who were either supportive or abusive
  • Her friendship with music industry veteran Charlie Minor and what happened to the woman who murdered him in March 1995 (Clip of E True Hollywood Story: Charlie Minor)
  • Her love affair with Michael Hutchence (she told me later he was “great in the sack!”)
  • What she feels went wrong with the Martin Scorsese/Mick Jagger-produced rock drama Vinyl
  • The best advice she can give anyone who wants to begin a career in music
  • What she is up to today.
