July 15, 2013 "I first came in contact with “Professor Foglesong” when I took Business of Music as an elective credit hour at Vanderbilt in 2001. We struck up a great friendship as I was one of the few Vandy kids in the large class who was legitimately interested in pursuing the music business as a future career path. I saw him as a wealth of knowledge – and was awestruck at his professional experience and signings of some of the most impactful artists this format has ever seen. After graduating from Vanderbilt, Professor Foglesong offered to be a reference for helping me land my first job, and we kept in touch regularly. I was always happy to return to his class every semester at his request for a “guest speaker” when they got around to covering the radio promotion portion of the course material. It was always a joy to meet him for dinner at Noshville prior to the class – and we'd talk about everything under the sun, and even at 90 years of age he still had a genuine interest in learning more and more about the ways the business continues to progress and change. He taught that class up until last year – and he was nearly 90 at that time! His sweet soul & genuine love of music – and experience as a singer & performer that preceded his business career – were some of the things I admired most. The level of integrity that shrouded this man has been a powerful inspiration in my life. What an incredible life and legacy!
