Grammy Awards

CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke review key events in music and the music business from the last seven days, which this week makes it a Grammy Awards special. Because the run-up to this year’s ceremony was pretty dramatic. When recently appointed Recording Academy CEO was placed on “administrative leave” ten days before the event, a war of words erupted with accusations of sexual harrassment, corruption and vote fixing. Plus there was a thing with Aerosmith. Setlist is sponsored by 7digital.
