The Best Damn Record Club – Vinyl Me, Please
September 26, 2016
Welcome to Episode 46 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with Vinyl Me, Please founders Matt Fiedler & Tyler Barstow.
“As things changed we always had this idea that it would be cool to build just the coolest … music club ever.”
Today I chat with the entrepreneurial partners behind Vinyl Me, Please: Matt Fiedler & Tyler Barstow. The discussion is brief, but we get a great rundown from the perspective of the founders: these two discuss how they came together and discovered new music, and ultimately launched “the best damn record club.”
We’ll hear about the challenges of being a part-time entrepreneur, as well as managing rapid growth. They’ll recall the logistical challenges they faced as a startup and how the challenge grew when their business expended. They’ll briefly discuss some of their solutions as well as their current philosophy on relationships between vendors and customers.
Of course we’ll talk a little bit about music, as well as some of the history of vinyl and the role of online music providers like Spotify and Soundcloud. We’ll also hear a bit about some recent work with My Morning Jacket and Glass Animals.
