Reliving the Future Musical musings from aging hipsters

Episode 22: Aaron Borns, Record Biz Whiz Kid

Aaron Borns started at 97X as a student intern (a.k.a. “co-producer”) for the Breakfast Club in 1993, then worked part-time shifts, answered the phones and worked with Julie Maxwell doing promotions. He wasn’t at the station long, but the lessons he learned there served him well during a 20-plus year career doing promotions and marketing at RCA Records. Dave and Damian talk to Aaron about his 97X days, his record label roles… and how he got a free car while he was at 97X.

  1. The pic is from 1993 Day In Eden, because the 1994 D.I.E. was one of the first events I worked as an intern/part timer.
