Season 1: John Ugolini

From the Audiotree studios in Chicago, I caught up with long-time friend John Ugolini, owner of Kickstand Productions and a fellow independent talent buyer. John's got so many great stories about what it takes to make it in this business (and when a venue steals all the money), partying with Snoop Dogg, and how his sister told him "What's My Age Again?" was a terrible song to be his "anthem".
