ADY CRAMPTON CHATS TO THE STARS

Ray Caviano

September 17, 2018

Back in the late ’70s disco heyday, Ray Caviano was in his prime as the scene’s number-one record executive. From his glitter ball perch at Warner / RFC records, the then President of Warner Bros Music launched hits for Rod Stewart, The Doobie Brothers, Gino Soccio and Ashford and Simpson and the scorching debut LP from Change featuring Luther Vandross.  Some 40 years on Change are back with a great CD ‘Love4Love’ and again, with Caviano’s backing, is sure to do well.

 

Ray chats to Ady about those heady days and the exciting future ahead for his resurrected RFC label:
