The legendary independent roots label Rounder Records was born in 1970. Founder and author Bill Nowlin said “it was a hobby that got out of control.” His new book is the story of three people with no background in business who took an idea and, through hard work and passion, built up something of lasting cultural significance.
Bill joins us to take us through those fifty years, with stories about the music business, and his partners, roots music, George Thorogood and The Destroyers, Studio One and Jamaica, 15-year -old prodigy Alison Krauss, her record with Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, and the role of record labels today.
