Special Edition #1 - A conversation with Jerry Diaz

Special Edition #1 - A conversation with Jerry Diaz

July 26, 2020

Welcome to a special edition of the Trop Rock 101 Podcast. This Episode is a departure from our normal format. Instead of interviewing a Trop Rock personality, we are featuring a conversation with Jerry Diaz and his daughter Danielle. Listen in as we discuss Jerry's vision for a new social club that is not focused on a single artist or beholden to a specific corporate entity.  

The new social club doesn't even have a name yet. Many details are still being figured out. The purpose of this conversation is to give everyone a general idea of Jerry's vision as we embark on this new journey.

Thank you for your support of the our independent artists and the community in general.
