Indie Record Labels

When Dolly Parton wanted to return to her bluegrass roots, instead of going with a major record label, she went with an independent one — Durham’s Sugar Hill Records. Why are the big names going with the little guys? Host Eric Hodge speaks with Bev Paul, General Manager of Sugar Hill Records; Mac McCaughan, co-owner of Merge Records; Glenn Dicker, label manager at Yep Roc Records; and Steve Balcom, partner at The Splinter Group in Carrboro about surviving and thriving in the music business. Listener Call-In. (59:00)
