Entertainment lawyer Michael Aczon has music running through his veins.
In Part 1, Michael talks about his father's arrival in San Francisco in 1931 (including, he later found, lots of time at the International Hotel), his family's return to San Francisco in the 1960s, growing up in the Bayview, and learning to navigate the city on Muni and his bicycle. He and his friend Marcos once rode their bikes over the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin, where Michael saw his first "separated houses." You will hear and feel Michael's deep appreciation of The City in this episode.
In Part 2, Michael shares what it was like living next to a patron of the San Francisco jazz scene. He'll talk about his brother's band, H.P. Riot, and some old SF music venues. He ends the podcast with his thoughts on what makes music in San Francisco so special.
We recorded this podcast at The Ramp in May 2018.
