Michael Alago spent the mid-1970's as a denizen of Max's and CBGB's, revelling in newfound musical freedom and how it related to him as a gay Latino kid growing up in Brooklyn. He started a Dead Boys fanclub and grew into a downtown music scene fixture, eventually booking gigs at the Ritz. He then found himself ascending to an A&R position at Elektra and signing Metallica to the label, as well as working with countless other legends. Drew Stone's 2017 documentary film 'Who the F*** Is That Guy?" chronicles Alago's travels and trials, and new resurgence in life and his outlook.
Having been a guest numerous times on Gimme, we welcome Michael at last to the DJ seat! As with many of our guests, we will have a tip jar handy which you can utilize in any denomination.
