For the 44th episode episode of #startthebeat I sat down with Donald Byron​ for an awesome conversation about the local music scene and his time spent being one of the most active and influential D.I.Y. promoters the Pittsburgh scene has ever seen. Play'r Productions​ was a huge deal for a lot of local bands in the time it was active and at the center of all of it was just a simple dude who only wanted to help his friends play some shows. Little did he know he would help shape an entire community. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!
