    Sadly the estate is a business who gets 10% cut of any money they bring in and that might be why they never really put effort into anything that has little or no commercial viability.
    They have done a considerable good job in the financial and litigation part but puts little effort in appeasing the fans and to be honest nobody not even any artist can connect with his fans in the way that Michael did.
    Also I doubt there is anyone out there that could run it better than Branca considering he was well versed with the whole Michael history privy to information that we can only dream of.
    As he is not a young man we are assured that his reign at the estate is not going to last too much longer and finally when the children get control of it they will correct all the wrongs like pulling down the fake tracks and getting the right person to handle MJ social media and channel the effort into what Michael was all about.

    Thank for the show! I am listening now. Las Vegas Strip and all hotels are closed. Just to update you on that. It’s not only the MJ show. Hopefully by the summer vegas will be back and running! I miss my vegas road trips
