Radio Never Apart Episode 19: Tony Zanetta

Tony Zanetta moved to New York in the late 1960s, “to be a gay boy” as he puts it. He quickly became part of the downtown theatre scene, alongside performers like Jackie Curtis and Candy Darling. This episode is a fast paced dive into 1970s New York with Tony discussing the overlap of the art and theatre worlds at that time.

Tony also shares about becoming part of the Main Man Record Label which helped launch David Bowie’s in the United States.
