Grammy predictions smackdown: Tom O’Neil vs. David Schnelwar (podcast)

Among Gold Derby Editors, David Schnelwar knows his music awards so well that he holds the lofty nickname “Grammy Guru.” But that doesn’t cause me to pull any punches as we duke it out over the top four categories. After all, I know a thing or two about these kudos. I wrote Variety’s book “The Grammys” and am the landlord around here at Gold Derby.
