Making a Scene Presents an Interview with a Pro

Mick Kolassa - Endless Blues Records

Endless Blues Records is a different kind a record company. We started as a “personal” label for Mick Kolassa and have expanded to work with other artists. Our goal is to help independent artists get their music recorded in a quality way and made available broadly. We work with artists in several different ways from simply providing logistic help and advice to help with get the recording released and promoted to fully financing the production of an album.

We’re a small firm with limited resources so we’re going to be selective in the folks we can help and do more with it. We are not seeking new artists at this time but are actively evaluating potential future partners.

In a age where the bottom is falling out of the market for "recorded music" starting an indie label can be an expensive decision. Mick Kolassa has taken on the task and we talk to him about his decision to open his indie label and his plans on how he expects to make it successful. If you want to learn the music business from the ground up, this is a great interview to begin with.

"Free Range Blues" is a term you will hear about in this episode as Mick and the band demonstrate that very notion. You've heard Mick before, now hear the band. These guys are a lot of fun and you'll probably learn a few things along the way. Also in this episode, Ric discovered what one local radio station decided to do on Halloween. It involves the despicable act of celebrating one day in December at the end of October. A little rant is in this episode.

An old friend of Radio Memphis, Mr. Mick Kolassa steps into the studio this time around with a brand new CD. You'll hear a couple of songs from it and learn how you can add it to your library, which is highly recommended. Also in this episode, Ric takes a shot at all of the so-called "experts" plying their trades on Facebook. He has made an interesting comparison between what happens away from the social media to what is happening on social media.
