Peter Sivo, July 24, 1923 - January 14, 2019

Peter Sivo's legacy is his music that has been heard by millions, and will likely be heard by millions more people in the future. Sadly, we recently lost our most senior TAXI member, but we think he's looking down from above and loving that we're giving him one last tip of the hat that he and his music so richly deserve. Pete was still getting big placements at the age of 95 years old. Read this heartwarming tribute and you'll understand why!

Michael says it's a "Must Read," and TAXI doesn't make a penny when you buy your copy! "Dan Graham is modest by nature, but when you see his credits and hear the music in his catalogs, you'll want to know what he knows. This book is a treasure trove!"

Song Review "Speed Dating" With Robin Frederick

obin Frederick joined us for another Song Review Session, and like the last time we did it, this too was done like Speed Dating. Truth be told, we've had a number of people tell us that we spend too much time on each song during past episodes. So, during this episode of TAXI TV, we'll play about half of each song, and Robin will give quick, shoot-from-the-hip bullet points rather than her normal deep dive analysis! Spoiler alert: She still gives just as much information, but she gives it more quickly ;-)
