This week, Nick Scalera fills in for Jim on Rockin’ the Suburbs. You may remember him from that time he did a ‘Guest Shot’ episode back in August 2017? He talks to Patrick today about an indie record label, from New Zealand, called Flying Nun Records.

FUN FACT: In a 2016 interview with the New Zealand Herald, Flying Nun Records founder Roger Shepard talked about why he started the label.

“I was really in love with the scene. I could see all this great music being made and wanted to get it recorded before the moment passed. The perception was that because I had a job in a record shop perhaps I knew something about the industry. “
