What Should I Ask Music Biz Innovator Terry McBride Today?

Later today I'll speak with Terry McBride during a live online radio show. In 1984, Terry co-founded Nettwerk Music Group from his apartment in Vancouver.

In the 26 years since then, the company has released over 500 albums and sold more than 150 million copies worldwide. Nettwerk manages the careers of Sarah McLachlan, Jamiroquai, Stereophonics, Jars of Clay, and many others. He also co-founded the Lilith Fair, which will return in 2010.

In recent years, Terry has been outspoken about advances in digital technology and the future of music. He's been covered in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Wired magazine. He also gave a presentation at TEDxVancouver recently (watch the video here).

Terry will be the guest today on David Mathison's show on Blog Talk Radio. David, who is a media expert and author of "Be the Media," has asked me to co-host the show with him. I'm thrilled. I've been following Terry McBride's new ideas about music consumption and distribution for years, but have never met him. This will be a treat.

The show streams live online from 5 to 6 PM EST today (Feb 3) from this page. Or use this player:

So, what should I ask him?

David and I already have a good list of questions ready. But in case we're overlooking something, what would you ask Terry McBride if you had the chance?

Leave a comment below and let me know. But do it quick! The show starts in a few hours.

If you miss the live stream, you can always listen to it later on this page.
