Social Media is very interesting. No matter what you may think, it has change how we do things from business to music to cooking and more. Today, while checking 88Nine RadioMilwaukee Artist To Watch Michael Kiwanuka's Facebook page, I came across a conversation with Michael Kiwanuka and Neal Sugarman, owner of the legendary Daptone Records (home to Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings). It was kind of interesting to see a label head converse publicly with an artist about a possible future project or maybe even getting signed by Daptone records.

Could this be the possibly first record deal made via Facebook publicly on an artist's page?
