Twilight of the Gods is a five-part series examining the history of the recording industry.
The series was created by veteran producer and broadcaster Robert Harris. Although he'd been listening to recorded music all his life, Harris realized that he knew almost nothing about the business itself — the collision of talent, money, greed, luck and effort that got those records made and into our hands. And now that business, which has provided our music for almost a century, is collapsing.
We all know the stereotypes — money-obsessed record execs and their high-powered lawyers who suck the life out of creative artists, shackling them to unfair contracts and giving them crumbs in return.
But is that the reality? Twilight of the Gods seeks to find the answers.
