Doyle Davis is owner of Grimey's New and Preloved Music as well as the independent label, Outta Sight Records.
Some people say it's a bad time to be in the retail record business. And some people say it's a bad time to own a record label. Doyle doesn't think so and why he feels that way is what we talked about.
We also talked about building community, how to get the attention of a record label, why kids are buying vinyl, how the Internet is important to new music, being a "tastemaker," and more.
Demos Reviewed: Longneck Strangler, Ken Collier, Gypsy Piano Blues, Kenny Woods, Wintergreen, Constance Harlow, and Mark Allan.
