Business Talk for Entrepreneurs

In 2013, Jamie started a radio show called The Jamie Meloni Real Estate show which aired Mondays at Noon on Tampa Bay's 1250 WHNZ. Then on February 2nd, 2015, he launched the 5 day a week live program, That Business Show which aired for two years from 7am to 9am each morning on 1250 WHNZ. In March of 2017, the program moved to an online web based television show and new episodes aired each morning (pre-recorded) at www.ThatBusinessNetwork.Com with Thursdays being The Real Estate Edition of the program. The program was ended in October 2017 but past episodes remain online to listen to. Jamie has interviewed over 1100 different business professionals and has a vast network of contacts across Tampa Bay and the Country as a result of the radio show / podcast and his extensive success in Real Estate sales.

Opening up the program today was music industry insider Tony Michaelides. Tony has an irrefutable reputation achieved over 30 years working with a stellar cast of clients including David Bowie, U2, REM, Genesis, Dave Matthews, Bob Marley, Depeche Mode, Happy Mondays, Matchbox Twenty, The Police, The Pixies, New Order, The Stone Roses, Massive Attack, Neneh Cherry, Annie Lennox, Whitney Houston, Take That, Natalie Imbruglia, Westlife, P. Diddy, Elvis Costello, and Peter Gabriel. Tony’s worked with BMG, Island Records, Transatlantic Records, Circa Records, Factory Records, Simon Fuller, and Simon Cowell. He returned to the program today to talk about his relationship with David Bowie who passed this year and was a musician whom he held in high regard. He shares a story about his first encounter with David Bowie in the 90s and how he toured with him. He was impressed by his humble nature and willingness to engage with all around him. Tony was a sought after contributor after David Bowie’s death this year and you may have seen him on Bay News 9 and other news outlets talking about the singer. Tony also worked with U2 and shares their story of being an ordinary band and how he never imagined they would amount to what they became in this segment too. We close with a quick story about him working with Genesis and Phil Collins but without a time constraint, Tony has musical stories that will span hours. He is an author and speaker as well and you can learn more about him at!
