Vlado has held staff mastering positions for Columbia (when it was the #1 label in the world), Sony Music, and Universal Music before striking out as an independent.
In that time he's racked up credits with the Beastie Boys, Andrea Bocelli, Johnny Cash, Celine Dion, Duran Duran, Julio Iglesias, Michael Jackson, Lil Wayne, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Metallica, George Michael, Oasis, Pink Floyd, Public Enemy, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shakira, Barbra Streisand, Jack White, and many, many more.
Vlado has a lot of great stories, but one of the best is how he fled the Russian invasion of his native Czechoslovakia to eventually get a job at the famous CBS Studios in New York City.
In the intro I'll take a look at Avid's latest restructuring, and a very interesting Nielsen study that finds how different radio is from what we're actually listening to.
