Recording artist and life-long Michael Jackson fan, Darren Hayes, was joined by Jackson’s former studio technical director, Brad Sundberg, for a fascinating chat on Blog Talk Radio today!
“In our conversation Brad shares rare stories about the King of Pop and reveals a human and heartfelt glimpse into the extraordinary creative world of Michael Jackson,” says Hayes of the podcast.
“I take live callers who share their own unique connection to the King of Pop and we talk about his influence on pop culture and as a person of inspiration.”
Hayes engaged with Sundberg and his audience for over an hour, covering all facets of Michael Jackson’s illustrious career. Some of the opinions and perspectives raised by both Hayes and his callers during the podcast had me absolutely captivated – particularly Hayes’ description of seeing Jackson live on stage during the Bad World Tour at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in 1987:
“The way he moved on that stage was like a conductor of electricity. There were waves of hysteria – and he had an energy about him that was like looking into the eye of a tornado – and yet it was so calm. I was a fan and I was a student, and I just looked at the effect that he had on people and it was like he was conducting magic.”

Regarding ‘In The Studio With MJ’:
Brad Sundberg joined Michael Jackson’s recording team during the production of Captain EO in 1985, and remained with Michael as one of his audio engineers and Technical Director for nearly 18 years. Brad was actively involved in the studio production of four Michael Jackson albums: BAD, Dangerous, HIStory, and Blood On The Dance Floor. He also worked on remixes and edits for countless singles, short films, and tour preparations associated with these projects.
Sundberg’s In The Studio With Michael Jackson seminars are considered by fans to be the most respectful and enlightening celebration of Michael’s music legacy on offer.
Seminars are currently scheduled for Amsterdam (April 19), Brussels (April 23), St. Petersburg (April 26 and 27), and Los Angeles (June 23, 24 and 25).
