For the 200th episode of this show, we’re featuring the Pittsburgh-based label, Misra Records, including an interview with label manager Jeff Betten. In this episode, we cover Misra’s 20 year history, the relationship between physical records and streaming, the impact of the pandemic on the music industry at large, the geography of Pittsburgh and it’s inherent benefits, and signing artists from unsolicited demos! This is part one of two focusing on Misra – in this episode you’ll hear the interview and some new music from the label as well as other artists mentioned in our conversation, and then for next week, we’ll take a deeper dive thru the label’s two decades worth of music.
