Sandy Gibson Interview Archive


The Sandy Gibson Interview Archive contains over 135 unedited interviews with artists and record executives in the music industry conducted for several award-winning radio shows during the 1970s and 1980s, and are a veritable who’s who in rock.  

Gibson wrote and produced several multi-hour internationally syndicated radio rock documentaries commemorating the Monterey Pop Festival with Lou Adler and also wrote and produced “The Doors: From the Inside”;  “At the Core: Rock From the Inside, The Beginnings” and “Slash and the Hard Edge of Rock” in collaboration with  Jac Holzman, the founder of Elektra Records.

Gibson was the production coordinator on rock radio’s first syndicated doc, “The Original 48-Hour History of Rock & Roll”  interviewing every musician that appeared on the epic 48-hour show. 

Gibson started in the music business working for Florence Greenberg, the legendary founder of the Scepter/Wand labels and then Kama Sutra Records. She then ventured into publicity at Family Records with Billy Joel as her first client. By 1973, Ahmet Ertegun hired her as Director of Publicity at Atlantic/Atco/Asylum/Swan Song/Rolling Stone Records. At Atlantic, she met Bette Midler and proceeded to work with Bette for the following decade.  

Gibson also photographed and captured wonderful behind-the-scenes images of those she interviewed and worked with over several decades.

Transcripts and copies of the interviews are available upon request.
