Speaking with Sam Tarantino CEO and Co-founder of Grooveshark

One of the reasons why I love interviewing startups - especially in NYC - is that you never know who you are going to meet. I was invited to meet-up with Sam Tarantino at the Grooveshark headquarters.  The company is literally across the street from The Garden and they occupy the former offices of 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson).

Even before the interview began Sam, Zev and I spent quite some time chit-chatting about NYC, 50 Cent, Florida, music and "Back to the Future." Sam is very bright and his love for music and his knowledge of the space is very impressive. Instead of me trying to explain what Grooveshark does - let's listen in to what Sam has to say.
