Ted Chapin has many stories about the music industry, making his June 2010 interview fascinating. As president of Rodgers & Hammerstein Music since 1985 he spoke of the growth and development of Broadway publishing. As the son of a Steinway (his mother was a Steinway and her famous brothers included John, Ted and Henry Z) Ted discussed his own experience working in the Steinway factory along with his twin brother. Ted’s love of musicals also makes him a wonderful source for the history of Broadway and related music publishing.
