"Also Kinda came across from what little I know touch cynical put touch. He was very cynical but he wasn't so cynical that he dropped out of trying to change the system. This this was is a guy who's more libertarian. than he was democratic he wanted he wanted the country to keep its hands off of you know his pocket book which is a very Lubar -tarian value and don't forget I mean he was a combat. A composer conductor a musician and engineer producer looser and a distributor of his own music. And then he went off into when he did video he also funded that himself. That's typical Libertarian Shall we say combination intern. Because somebody who is so self reliant and smart will often skew libertarian. Because they're in the motive. Leave me alone you know. Well a lot of musicians have been ripped off historically because they didn't pay attention to the contracts they were signing and that was I'm in charge and I will do all the necessary footwork in order to look over contracts because I want to be the boss. I'm wondering what he would think of spotify and things like that now he would hate it by the way John McLaughlin to wonderful electric guitarist who was using the mob each new orchestra and I got to interview him for music power talking about Jimi Hendrix and mcglaughlin told me that that's he knows who had a million hits on spotify and get pathetic royalty checks. Oh yes they are not being compensated. -tated fairly so in essence. Unless you're one of the very few who break big and you get a lot out of television promotion. You can still be a band that gets a lot of renown and a lot of hits and a lot of sales and you. You can barely make a living. And that's a very sad change in the music industry and and mcglaughlin also told me another thing which I agree with with and makes me a little sad. When he left Miles Davis and he started working with his own band the Mojave Snow Orchestra? They used to pair them. mm up with country rock bands and hard rock and folk rock and in a way they would team up people it with with other people that weren't in their genre and people's attitude and going to live music was oh this is going to be kind of interesting. Let's see who's supporting John McLaughlin and sometimes it worked and sometimes people said I don't care I just WanNa see John McLaughlin but you won't see that anymore anymore. You won't see mixing genres in live. Music acts in the US anymore. That's too bad some of that was created by I don't know if you've seen I think it's called corporate radio but in the late nineties. How all of the radio stations you know? Change the laws up and they consolidate its. He had clear channel and groups like that to wind up owning like every radio station. The same town will look. Jazz is music in the. US is always going to be very select and it's always going to be more popular in Europe that's just about tastes. What clear channel did was it? Also eliminated this jockeys influencing the playlist because all of a sudden it was corporate and all of a sudden. The corporation Shen owned more formerly independent station. It's the same artists right around the early eighties are still there. It's time you know you. You know you're talking to a Guy Eric who's cranky. Not a hippie. I I kinda missed the whole hippie thing. I was too young for that. But but the ethos of experimentation and open-mindedness is very important to me as a creative person. So whether I'm writing or I'm working as literary consultant and finding out what the client wants to do and encouraging them no matter whether it's you know something that's very specialized and we'll have a big audience. If the client wants to do it. I want to help them get there and I grew up on radio in the bay. The area in San Francisco so we're talking about Cam. PX KFI IN THE FIRST TWO FREE-FORM FM stations in the country. And those guys would walk into the studio Eric and go okay. Well you know I just heard about this band. You know the pen tangle and they kind of are medieval evil England folk music but then we're going to follow that up with Jimi Hendrix and then it will be Odeta and then buffy Sainte Marie and they would play such a unique combination of music that you could be exposed to stuff you would never hear otherwise and that's not really possible anymore and it makes me really cranky but at the same time I hate to say the independent artists are out there Youtube has been a channel for some artists who never would have gotten discovered come out and by taking a hit us you know the money out of out of it now. It's really kind of. They have have to really believe and really go at it because they're not gonNa do it for the bucks we'll let me put it this way. I think that this is the best time ever in history to be a fan of music because spotify and Youtube and all the different methods of dispersing music. It's fantastic you know. Oh you don't just listen to your. Fm Am radio anymore but the problem goes back to John. McLaughlin talking about spotify. It's harder than ever to make a living as a musician. Same thing is true in books. You know there's been a retraction and publishing it. Sounds like we're going around and around. It's it's it's the corporate talkradio you know. It's five or six companies owning all the major publishers. If you said to me Brad you can publish your own book right now. And and put it on kindle. I'd go great. Do you think you're gonNA make much money. As as getting a book published the by a Major New York publisher probably not unless you're yelled unity and left. Money is what I'm saying right. It's a weird. Yeah it's it's a crazy Z.. Balance I was GONNA say unless you're James and she managed to pull one out. Yeah yeah or you know. I'm not saying there aren't exceptions. E Book Publishing Eric is Actually a very great place for Genre Publishing You know dark gothic stuff. Very sexualize D- novel Romance novels especially those. Because I feel like those are the novels. People wouldn't read on the train because the cover would be up but how nobody Kazuya. That's right that nobody can see that salacious artwork on the cover. Those are also driven by incredible fandom. So and that's that's part of the effort for bands and authors who aren't with the nature label or publisher. Is You gotta find a way to find your audience and it takes a lot of work. It's really a fulltime job. So you need the money to hire you. Know Somebody who's great with with publicists. You know who are really connected or someone who can manage your your social media network and and that's something you have to do every single day so when I work with an author who says well. I want to write this book Allen Self Publish it I said well I'll help you get it as good as you can with my notes which you know that it's GonNa take a lot of work Oh No I don't WanNa do that. I only want to write the book. All right. Well then hire someone who's great great with social media you know. I want them to know what they're up against. Well can we discuss efforts saying because I think it's important there's a lot of creators who listen this is a podcast And it's a similar principle. What I believe is it takes a good three years or more to actually take hold and I'm speaking of especially from like a podcast area but books probably? Aren't that different either. Take some time will. I'm sorry to say again if we're talking about the model model of the big five or six in New York publishing you have a very short window much like if you're making a studio movie in Hollywood it you'll be in stores. Only as long as the book is selling well now. This is of course aside from Amazon which drives online sale. So if you write a book and nobody's heard of you and somehow it's a breakout success. They'll keep it in the stores as long as it selling. Don't forget the volume of books. Being in published traditionally means that. If it doesn't do well you got two months three months. You know now you can still be a success. If you you have efforts to use social media to drive people to Amazon Barnes and noble and all the other online publishers are fraction. Action of what Amazon is Amazon's the big dog. Yes eighty twenty rule In first mover advantage. But yes. Yeah so you can still. You could still fail in the stores and still have a financial in creative success If you drive online sales but you've gotta find your audience audience and in its fraction. Aided you know well audiobooks also have really taken off. Yeah I noted when we talked before before we started recording. That you like listening audio you listen to the audio revolutions end direct and that was incredibly fun but I learned a number number of things about the audio book industry. I didn't know and one is. They go really fast. You're recording being A. You know what was it is eight or nine hours revolutions. And I went into studio here in Los Angeles. That's part of you've The the Producers House he has a home studio. And you're doing six hours of talking today and I'm like can I have a break here. Yeah you can have fifteen minutes to have some hot tea and then we're back in those work we want. We want you to finish in four days brutal and could God God you know I'll be. I'll be lucky for my voice. Start cracking at the end of this interview but it was also incredibly empowering and and I know that it's a different experience here. Someone read a book to You than it is to to read it yourself. And some people have an inclination to e books and some Mike Physical and so Mike Audio. What's timing thing? It's the same reason. PODCAST SIR are very popular to you. Could do two things at once. I can be reading a book while mowing the lawn while doing dishes. We'll drive into work. that that allows me to time into the day. You know what's really ironic ironic about it though. Eric is that radio. Drama is not successful still as a medium in this country and this is the Golden Age podcasting. I'm looking developing a podcast by the way For Death in paradise my book about the La Karner Nice. That'll it'll go. Well Yeah and you know true. Crime Kinda drives podcasting. so that's kind of a natural fit but I love radio drama and you would think would so many people listening to podcasts. That they would be exploring that avenue as well. So it's out there Laura I believe is audio drama Lot audio drama. It's coming up I. I hope so because it's got big programming from from radio stations. Oh no no no no. It's independence but what's happening happening is. It's big enough that like podcast movement. Which is the largest conference has a track? Just radio drama Yeah I was lucky enough to A gap the science fiction work two of my favorite writers Ray Bradbury who I knew before he died. Really wow I I did a short story. It's called the one who waits about a well on Mars than habits the spirit of all the dead Martians. And then when an American American NASA crew land on the planet the Voice of the well takes over each of them psychically. Until they're all doc dead and they join with the will as one very spooky and and then the other is probably my favorite science fiction writer Philip K Dick Dick. He had a short story that I did for NPR's well called Fails pitch and this was you know. Usually Asli Science. Fiction isn't very funny. They're usually very dark or it's driven by hardware and violence but fails pitch is a future future where you walk down the street in your town and there are robots better constantly going. Hello Eric Hundley I would like to offer you my services and they try and sell you on stopping and they drive you crazy..
