As we round the corner in the into the final quarter of the first 100 episodes of the show, we welcome Mike Mehalick of Good Eye Records (and Speak Into My Good Eye) to talk us through the genesis of the label and his own adventures through a career in the music industry. We also hit on NJ (Kevin Smith, obviously, and beer, less obviously perhaps), what it takes to get on the Good Eye tip, how great art gets made (check out Sarah Ver Hoeve to see for yourself), an exclusive premiere of a track by the band Language, and a publicist shoutout. Stick around after the interview and label feature for a handful of other brand new music.
