The story of a massive 2008 fire that destroyed untold thousands of irreplaceable master tapes owned by Universal Music Group has only fully come to light this year.

On this episode I'm joined by Mark Lindsay, legendary vocalist from Paul Revere and the Raiders (and my frequent tour mate), who shares his unique perspective on asset management in the recording industry.
