This episode of Music Stuff looks at the world of Artist Managers with an interview with Rick Barker; music industry and artist development expert and first manager to Taylor Swift.
In this first in a series of “Tour Stories” episodes, Scotty sits down with Grammy Award winner, Raul Malo, from The Mavericks to talk about his experience while performing and filming the PBS documentary, Havana Time Machine, in Havana Cuba.
I’m Still Standing…
Greetings my friends! I want to first apologize for not having any new episodes over the past month and a half. As many of you know, I produce this podcast alone and believe it or not. The process is quite time consuming so as a result, I’m not able to pump out episodes as often as most podcasts (yet) or as often as I’d like. And since I have yet to generate any revenue from this show, I must prioritize those money making endeavors over the podcast. I do hope that will change in the future. Anyway, I haven’t stopped! I’m still standing! (Do you like my Elton John reference? I’m just excited that the family and I are going to see him in October!)
New Episodes Ready Ready For Release
I am super excited for the next round of episodes, however! I have several new episodes ready to release, including a fascinating interview with Raul Malo from the Grammy Award winning band, The Mavericks. It’s the first in what will hopefully become a series of “Tour Stories” episodes; where I chat with recording artists about experiences they have on the road. In my sit down with Raul, he talks about his experiences while performing and filming the PBS documentary, Havana Time Machine, in Havana Cuba. As a Cuban-American, Raul had a unique perspective and take-away from the trip. I’ll be releasing his episode this coming Wednesday, May 9th! You won’t want to miss it!
Thank you to those listeners that have reached out with compliments and comments. I really do welcome the feedback. I especially want to hear from you with your episode topic ideas. The music world is quite broad and there may be something you’d like to know more about that I may not think of. Please don’t hesitate to hit me up on social media, or simply go to my Contact page and shoot me a message.
This episode sheds some light behind the scenes of concert lighting with a discussion with lighting designer, Chris Lisle, who has designed shows for Miranda Lambert, Robert Plant, Jason Aldean, Quincy Jones, and Keith Urban just to name a few.
I have yet ANOTHER destination announcement for Music Stuff. TuneIn Radio has added Music Stuff with Scotty Huff to its lineup. Along with iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and iHeart, TuneIn is one of the big distributors of online content. These are the bigger names in podcast delivery, but there are dozens of apps that provide podcasts through a general RSS (Really Simply Syndication) feed. For example, on my Android phone, I use a tiny free app called “Podkeeper Fee”. It’s no frills and some podcasts don’t appear in its listings. Which I find odd since I didn’t have to do anything special to get this podcast on there. So you should be able to find this podcast on just about any destination. However PLEASE tell me if there is a specific destination that does not carry this show and I will try to make it available there for you.
If you haven’t already, please follow and friend me on my social media sites and sign up for my email blasts! And please share this show with your friends and social media followers. I’d really appreciate it. Here’s where to find me:

And don’t forget to check out my latest episode, MS105: Inside A Tour Bus with guest Bryan “Pig” Caldwell. I have to apologize to Pig for misspelling is first name. By the time I noticed it, I had already published it. I fixed the “i” to a “y” everywhere I could, but I’m afraid some of the bigger destinations loaded the episode in their libraries before I could make the change. Sorry Pig!
