The Rock Star Branding podcast, presented by Brian Thompson and Michael Brandvold from The Music Biz Weekly, announces that Greg Kihn will be joining the show as the new special guest co-host.
Greg Kihn, known for his top 10 singles The Breakup Song and Jeopardy, is also a radio morning veteran with 16 years under his belt hosting a morning show in the San Francisco market. The Rock Star Branding podcast will debut with Greg Kihn on March 13th. The show can be found on Apple iTunes, Stitcher Radio, Blackberry Podcasts, SoundCloud, thornybleeder.com, MichaelBrandvold.com and of course GregKihn.com.
On joining the Rock Star Branding podcast Greg Kihn had this to say, “Michael approached me at the perfect time. I just finished writing my soon to be released book Rubber Soul and was getting the urge to get behind a mic again and tell my road stories. The Rock Star Branding podcast is a perfect outlet for me to impart my experience in music and radio in short, easy to digest tidbits, just don’t eat them too fast and choke.”
Co-host Michael Brandvold said, “When Brian Thompson and I decided to retool the show I had a crazy idea about seeing if Greg Kihn would be interested in joining us. Having listened to Greg on the air for years I knew he had the insight that only a rock star would have… he has toured the world as a MTV star.”
Brian Thompson added, “We always have a lot of fun on this podcast as we joke around and share war stories from our own experiences and from those whose careers we study. It’s going to be an absolute riot and a pleasure to have someone with Greg’s storied past join us and share his well-travelled tales with our audience.”
