“Music is a springboard for everything else”
Recorded live at The Book Club in London on Tuesday 25 September 2018, this latest episode of the Stack podcast is a panel discussion featuring the people behind four of the UK’s most interesting music magazines: Hanna Hanra (Beat), Tom Armstrong (The Move), Paul Bradshaw (Straight No Chaser) and Woody Cecilia (Cool Brother).
Of course they’re all driven by a love for music, but they’ve chosen very different ways of expressing that passion, and have each found their own ways of overcoming the challenges thrown up by independent publishing. In this conversation they share the sometimes hard realities of making music magazines, plus lots of tips for getting a print project off the ground. (Including stealing spreadsheets, haggling for advertising and buying lots of drinks.)
If you enjoy this one you can find lots more conversations with independent magazine makers in our podcast archives – just take a look in Soundcloud or iTunes or wherever else you get your podcasts to catch up with hours and hours of print publishing chat.
