SEASON 3, EPISODE 3: The Record Label

Record labels have been through a lot in the past 30 years: the CD boom, Napster, the rise of digital downloads and streaming. There have made missteps and their roles are different now. But labels are still with us (some of them anyway) and they still have a role to play. In this episode we talk with Steve Knopper (Rolling Stone), Portia Sabin (Kill Rock Stars), and Andrew Savage (Dull Tools, Parquet Courts) about what labels actually do now.

Listen above, then come chat with us over @hearpitch.
