This week on The Best Show With Tom Scharpling, we're sharing the very first episode of our Patreon-exclusive podcast, RUBINESQUE! If you enjoyed our previous deep dive into the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, SO FAR, you're going to love RUBINESQUE! 

 

In every episode we'll dive deep into the music produced or executive produced by the one and only RICK RUBIN from 1981 to 2022.

 

In the premiere episode, we take a look at the years 1981 through 1985 and focus on the beginnings of Def Jam and what the hip-hop scene was like during those formative years in the NYC metro area! Does Mike have a very insane connection to Rick Rubin? One we didn't even know about when we planned this podcast? You're going to have to listen to find out!

 

It all starts here. RUBINESQUE.
