We have pulled together a sampler of some of the best bits from Series 1 of our Sound Of The Hound podcast about Fred Gaisberg and the very early days of the record business, presented by long time music exec Dave Holley & author and journalist James Hall.
In this sampler: Dave thinks signing & recording Caruso gave birth to the modern record industry. James describes how to make a castrato (not for the squeamish) and they tell the tale of how Fred and his sidekick Sinkler Darby had a misadventure with acid in a Polish hotel room.
Series 2 is coming soon.
