Morning Edition on Tuesday, Oct. 23: "ROCKIN' A HARD PLACE" BY JOHN JETER

Written as a primer on the music business from the bottom of the pile, Jeter has documented his years as co-owner of the Handlebar in Greenville, SC, with a sense of humor and fascinating stories.

Jeter and his brother decided to enter the Concert Hall business with absolutely no experience, but a shared love of good music. From the tremendous learning curve required to learn the business to the ridiculous demands put into booking contracts, this book is a great read from the first page to the last.
