Darren Rose Radio - Inside Radio & Records is an unrestricted conversation series featuring artists, producers, managers, DJs, record execs, and other industry players offering perspective on their career and the music business. This is far from your typical radio interview - no edits, no time limit, no sound bites, and no censorship just entertaining, fresh, and insightful conversations with music industry pros.
Over the last 15 years, the music industry has seen more changes than any other time in history. One of those changes in recent years has been the near extinction of the long form interview. Enter Darren Rose Radio, a chance to connect and understand the business from artists and industry insiders far beyond their social networks.
Radio and records have been a constant in the life of Darren Rose since the days he would spin the family albums on his Fisher Price record player. Born and raised in Seattle, he was surrounded in that historic music city by great Rock radio stations like KXRX, KZOK, KNND, and KISW who all pushed the boundaries while connecting music to the masses. Inspired, Rose set sights on being that voice connecting the fans to the artists and their music.
His radio journey began in the late 90’s just out of college. He found his first on-air gig as an overnight jock at a low signal station south of Seattle (89.9 KGRG). Over 10,000 on-mic hours later, Rose had amassed a weekly audience of a million in Los Angeles at 98.7 KYSR. A good chunk of those thousands of hours on mic were spent interviewing everyone from Rock stars and Rap stars to Pop stars and Porn stars, actors, comedians, corporate execs and everyone in-between. With his laid back attitude and ability for digging deep and pressing the issues he gained a reputation for always delivering entertaining and unique interviews.
