Driving around running errands this afternoon, I caught an interesting interview with Ramseur Records founder Dolphus Ramseur on The State of Things.
Ramseur talks to host Frank Stasio about how he went from a music fan to label owner, his business of handshake deals and what he looks for in new talent.
Of course, they also discuss The Avett Brothers, who he met early this decade, being in the studio with Rick Rubin, and Carolina Chocolate Drops, who have an album out on Nonesuch in January.
Definitely worth a listen, and yet another reminder of all we have going on here in this state of ours.
