Today (December 4) sees the launch of a new podcast series, Did Ya Know?, aimed at telling the often unheard stories of key figures in the British music industry, and focusing initially on pioneering executives of colour, starting with an interview with Darcus Beese, the President and CEO of Island Records.
The team behind the new pod includes Stellar Songs co-founder Danny D and Decisive Management co-founder Adrian Sykes.
Every month, Did Ya Know? will feature discussions with and between industry leaders of colour, aiming not just to tell their stories but to inspire and guide a new generation of executives – and to increase diversity at all levels of the UK music business.
MBW and our sister publication, Music Business UK, are proud to be partners and supporters of the project, and a print version of the Darcus Beese interview, complete with pictures from the family album, will appear in the Q4 edition of MBUK, due out next week.
