#058 Thoughts On Releasing Music Pt1

As you know, we're in the midst of celebrating 20 years of Hotflush Recordings.

I've done a few interviews to co-incide with that recently, but I am very rarely satisfied with how an interview turns out in print. Luckily I do a weekly podcast and am taking the opportunity to interview myself (kind of) over a two part podcast, the first half of which is this week's episode.

I talk about the motivations for starting a label twenty years ago, the problem with A&Ring your own material, the key developments in the period up to 2010, and the invaluable help and guidance from a man called Chris Parkinson.

This episode refers to Episodes 10 (Appleblim), 27 (Chris Goss), 28 (Joe Nice), 54 (Distance).
