32: Howie Abrams - Publicity, Production and Publishing
April and Laura are chatting this week with Howie Abrams, former music business executive and author of several books including "Hip-Hop Alphabet," "The Blood and the Sweat: The Story of Sick of It All’s Koller Brothers" and "The ABCs of Metallica." They're diving into the processes of book publishing, artist and band promotion and how PR plays into the mix — including some behind-the-scenes stories about stars like Britney Spears, Kiss and Sick of It All. April and Laura also share some advice for aligning with clients on their messaging and deliver an Anonymous PR Horror Story from a listener who took a PR job that didn't quite match the description.
