59: Def Jam Recordings

Nearly 60 episodes deep into this podcast but we’ve never before focused an episode on an iconic record label. Better late than never as the first label we chose for an episode topic is the iconic Def Jam Recordings. In addition to the holy trinity of the label’s early years—Run-D.M.C., LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys—this one’s got Oran “Juice” Jones, Slayer and the Bangles. Plus lots more.
