RSR PC 048 Amanda Schutzman

Well we certainly talked some inside baseball with Amanda this month! I (Rick) took liberties with editing on this. It’ll make for a more amusing listen if you don’t have deep inside knowledge of music retail. If you are in music retail it’s not so disguised that you maybe can’t figure out the companies discussed. Y’know, MEGACORP!?  I also took the opportunity to add some spooky sounds since this is episode that is most current for Halloween. Heck, you may even figure out your own side story to go along with those sounds.

Oh yeah, so we talked about music retail business, record shows, the various stores Amanda has worked at from Slipped Disc to Needle & Groove, and Generation to her job as a representative at All Media Supply and her work putting on record shows with Vinyl Revolution. We also talk about what we’re listening to, what Amanda is listening to and what Amanda grew up listening to including her musical background.

The Redscroll Podcast is a monthly show (new episodes on the first of the month) that works as a companion to what we do at Redscroll Records in Wallingford, CT USA. We are a record store that has a heavy emphasis on the left of center / underground music of the world. Whether it be underappreciated or just has a niche audience, marginalized or just off the radar it’s all of interest to us. With the show we’ll generally have a localized focus. We’ll discuss what is in our personal rotation at the moment. We’ll talk to guests who have to do with all of the above. And we’ll talk about specific dealings with the store.
