Meet Tim Riley. Nominated 3 times for Billboard Magazine's "Promotion Man of the Year". He's worked with such acts as Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Bread, Dionne Warwick, Blondie, Cat Stevens, Billy Joel, and Carly Simon just to name a few.
We spend time in the studio chatting with Tim in how he got started in the business, working for major record labels, and even writing a song with the legendary Steve Cropper for The Staple Singers. Tim even shares the time he bumped into Elvis Presley at a Christmas Party, and lived to tell about it.
Tim shares insight as how today's independent artist, if willing to listen to experience and knowledge, can get music on the radio in a format that has worked for years, and that's the modern version of the radio special.
