Oral History Information
Arnold Broido was an industry treasure! The man had sophistication and charm as abundantly as he had energy and ideas! Having worked in nearly every level of the music publishing industry, Arnold gained the respect of his peers and the confidence of songwriters such as Frank Loesser. After being discharged from the Coast Guard, Arnold found work in the warehouse of Boosey and Hawkes and quickly rose to the ranks of editor. After leaving the company he went to work at EB Marks Music and eventually Frank Music. Eventually, Arnold joined with Theodore Presser in 1969 and in 1972 began serving on the ASCAP Board. Mr. Broido created many standards in the industry, including those related to royalty (he served as ASCAP president) and publishing rights (he also served as MPA president).
