84: Miles Copeland III - The Police (Manager), signed R.E.M. to IRS Records

Miles Copeland III reached out to us during lockdown restrictions in LA as he was bored and fancied a chat! Who were we to say no? Miles owned IRS records, signed The Police & REM, and worked with the CIA to win the hearts and minds of Iraqi's post 2001.  A genuine legend in the music business world, Miles shares his negotiation techniques when striking a deal with Francis Ford Coppola, and gives advice to musicians of what separates those who made it under his guidance and those who didn't.
