Subseries 21: Songwriters to Soundmen

Scope and Contents:
Songwriters to Soundmen gives Rock Hall audiences a free inside look at aspects of the music business that are often concealed from view. For those who wonder how songs become recordings, how recordings become hits, or how the show gets on the road, this series offers both answers and anecdotes beyond imagination. From label executives to producers to guitar tech to radio djs, the music industry is populated with remarkable characters who have equally remarkable stories to tell. If many of us know a whole lot about the stars, too few among us know about the folks who work alongside the stars, who discover stars, who direct the careers of stars, who produce their songs. Past interviewees include MTV VJ Matt Pinfield, singer and collector Marty Stewart, songwriter Weldon McDougal, III, and photographer Anastasia Pantsios.
