Ep020: Bootleg Records Special Part 2: Mike the Mic, Stephen Coates & X-Ray Audio

In part 2 of our 2 part series on bootleg recordings, we tell the story of Mike Millard "Mike the Mic" who recorded hundreds of bands in the 70s in Los Angeles, including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Who and many more, and then interview Mr Stephen Coates of the band "The Real Tuesday Weld" who just wrote a book titled "X-Ray Audio: The Strange Story of Soviet Music On The Bone". Fascinating book, you must hear what it was like for music fans behind the iron curtain during the cold war.
