The Bear Necessities
Tuesday May 9th, 2023 with Lester Bear
Rock'n'Roll Factory

On today's show featuring songs about the music business from the perspective of the artists. In some cases a tongue and cheek tune about an aspect of the music business, in other cases a more direct message about an industry that is somewhat removed from the actual art of making music and focused on making money even if it means, at times, chocking off the goose that lays the golden egg.
