episode 3: John Raso – The Harry Fox Agency

John Raso

John Raso is a music industry journeyman who has found himself in the middle of many historic moments.  He watched indie giant SST Records unravel when it began to oversaturate their fan base with too many record releases, and he was at Atlantic Records when the gangster rap controversy tore Warner Music Group apart. 

Listen to the latest episode of Between the Liner Notes as John talks about getting Sugar Ray on the Howard Stern Show, buying the underage band Live beer, and working at MCA records with an intern named Puff Daddy. He discusses his current role at The Harry Fox Agency and analyzes the new economics that streaming media and the internet have brought to the music industry. Listen to this exclusive interview on Between the Liner Notes.
