Meet Dan and Dan! Dan Reed, Music Director and Afternoon Host at WXPN/Philadelphia and Dan DeLuca, Music Critic and Columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer sit down on a bi-weekly basis to talk MUSIC!
Dorothy Carvello was the first female A&R executive in the history of Atlantic Records. She chronicles her career in a new book Anything for a Hit: An A&R Woman’s Story of Surviving the Music Industry. It’s a shocking portrait of an industry already known to be somewhat lawless. Dorothy talks to Dan and Dan about her intentions for writing the book, how the culture within the industry has changed and what it was like to working alongside industry icons like Ahmet Ertegun.
