What do Bruno Mars, Flo Rida, Ke$ha & Selena Gomez have in common? They are just a few of the artists who have in common our guest, Aaron Bay-Schuck.
Aaron is the President of A & R at Interscope Records and has signed and developed some of the biggest names in music. He's been a co-writer on some of the biggest hits of the last five years.
The crew discusses how Aaron found Bruno Mars and what goes into building the careers and the creative expressions of so many of our favorite artists.
Also, how is the music industry changing?
Aaron grew up as the son of actor John Schuck and actress Susan Bay. Bay then remarried, Leonard Nimoy. So Aaron grew up as the step-son of Leonard Nimoy and talks about his step-dad and the family since Nimoy's passing.
It's a great hour about music, creativity and a ride through what happens in the new world of the music business.
The show starts with THE FAST 15: Political reporter and analyst Michael Shure owns the fact that he may be wrong about THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE and not just because of the election result.

The smoke has barely cleared. It's less than a day after the polls closed and Emmy and Murrow award winning ABC White House and Senior National correspondent, Jim Avila reflects on what happened.
Why were the media pollsters so wrong?
Jim shares an insider's look and even talks about a memo that was circulated at ABC by the pollsters explaining what went on.
Avila talks about false equivalency and the notion of "fair" reporting in the run up to election day.
Was the media complicit in running down one candidate over in favor of the other.
Plus, a listener who had written to the show in the comments section of our website joins by phone to share a few minutes on why he voted for Donald Trump.

Frying the Political System While Getting a Decent Martini
Guests, Jimmy Dore and Michael Shure
THE FAST 15 with Michael Shure: We catch political analyst, Michael Shure, between road trips to cover the PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.
Of course, the conversation is diverted almost immediately when Michael goes nuts over the Jonathan Gold Best Restaurant List which has just come out.
Then it' on to the electoral college, which is both explained and defended by Michael Shure. Mark Thompson is not a fan.
Jimmy tells us about the perfect martini and torches the American political system.
He loathes Clinton and Trump and everyone else who has a whiff of being part of mainstream politics.
It's been a long, nasty political season and this is our big finish.
