Great interview with Scott! I really enjoyed hearing his perspectives on the industry and his career. I glad there are still people out there who have passion for radio.
A fascinating interview with many insights into the radio industry. I particularly enjoyed hearing Scott's personal connection with legendary DJ Dick Biondi who is the subject of my independent documentary film. Thanks RadioGirl and Scott Miller!
