The 'Wages of Spin II continues to weave the narrative thread established with the acclaimed (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, over 1000 PBS affiliate airings-featured on Entertainment Tonight) first installment. Little do millions of Americans know that in the 1970's and 1980's, the soundtracks of their lives were handpicked by a seedy consortium of Record Label Executives, Promotion Men, Organized Crime Figures and their cronies and Radio Programmers.
WOS II also explores a DOJ investigation into MCA that was shut down by The DOJ hierarchy and the quid pro quo history of Ronald Reagan and MCA and how that relationship impacted the aforementioned DOJ investigation and the relationship of several key members of Reagan's hierarchy and MCA and MCA executives and organized crime families.
