Taxi’s Michael Laskow, US Radio Decline, And The 5 Saddest Songs On My Latest Inner Circle Podcast

Michael Laskow on Bobby Owsinski's Production BlogMichael Laskow started Taxi in 1992 with the idea of helping songwriters, artists, bands, and composers get their music heard initially by record labels, and later by publishers and music supervisors. The company now has members in over 90 countries and features a host of placements with virtually every major television channel and film studio.
If you just think Michael is just a music publishing guy you’d be wrong though. He has a rich history as an engineer working on projects by Eric Clapton, Neil Young and Cheap Trick and many others, along with some serious work in postproduction as well.
During the interview Michael shared some of those stories, as well as some song publishing and submission tips that you might find surprising (I know I did). He’ll also give us a look inside Taxi and bust a few myths along the way.
On the intro I’ll look at U.S. radio going slowly downhill while the rest of the world prospers, and the algorithm that determined the 5 saddest songs ever (be prepared to be surprised).
