Session 29: Kevin Bronson founder

After 35 years in the newspaper business as a designer, editor & sportswriter, Kevin Bronson took his LA Times "hobby" column Buzzbands and launched - quickly becoming the go-to site for all things music discovery in Los Angeles. Kevin's been called "the last great music journalist" and his track record for picking talent reads like a who's who of industry success and radio stardom. Take note as he runs down his list of buzzworthy new artists coming out of So Cal. Kevin is an intelligent, incredibly insightful music-head with fascinating comments on sonic trends, writers block, music festivals, the media scramble for revenue and where this newsman gets his news.

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 sound bites, no censorship - just entertaining, fresh and insightful conversations with music industry pros.

Over the last 15 years music consumption has seen more changes than any other time in history. One of those changes is 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 & music 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 & raised in Seattle, he was surrounded in the historic music city by great Rock radio stations like KXRX, KZOK, KNND and KISW: all pushed the boundaries while connecting music to the masses. Inspired, Rose set sights on being that voice connecting the music to the masses.

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 countless artsts. With his laid back attitude and ability for digging deep and pressing the issues, Darren Rose gained a reputation for always delivering entertaining and unique interviews.
