#29 BRUCE YEKO, Record Producer

Bruce-Yeko-todayc

Bruce Yeko is one of the most fascinating men in show business. If it wasn’t for Bruce we wouldn’t have the original cast recordings of such musicals as The Baker’s Wife, In Trousers, Prettybelle, and countless other musicals that no commercial record company would have produced. Selling off his massive baseball card collection, Bruce used those funds to  produce over 300 cast recordings, earning him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Rob & Kevin traveled to visit Bruce in Connecticut and hear how he negotiated with William Finn, championed Stephen Schwartz, over pay Angela Lansbury, and why he loves exposing new audiences to hidden treasures!
