A writer, publisher and widely cited media expert in the field of music, Pete Howard started off as a professional disc jockey before moving on to an executive role with CBS Records for several years.  He later headed up the radio syndication firm that created Earth News and Country News before founding, owning, publishing and editing ICE magazine, which became possibly the finest source of CD news in the world for 19 years.  Also, a Contributing Editor for Rolling Stone magazine from 1988-1995 with a regular CD News column for their Record Review section, Pete additionally penned Goldmine magazine’s 22,000-word cover story on collectible music posters in 1995.  Along with planning a coffee-table book on the history of the American concert poster from 1920-1970, he is the only person in the world with a serious, comprehensive (4,000+) collection of rare concert-poster images from this time period.  Artifacts from Pete’s personal collection have been displayed in eight different museums around the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Paris and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland.  He also once built and possessed the world’s best Bob Dylan record collection.  Pete joined our Entertainment and Music Memorabilia department in 2019 as a Consignment Director.

Reporting on Heritage Auctions’ sale of an historic Dallas estate that had been on the market for more than two years was one of the most exciting real estate stories I’ve covered. I do not think they left one stone unturned in the marketing process, and
