Travis O'Guin Mid-Morning Grind Interview

“If it don’t make dollars, then it don’t make sense,” as DJ Quik so eloquently put it in 1995. Fast-forward about 20 years later and you still find his words to ring true to people like Strange Music CEO Travis O’Guin, who can’t figure out why a streaming service like Spotify won’t properly pay the artists whose music they use to fuel their product.

In this Mid-Morning Grind interview with Travis O’Guin, we tackled the issue of Spotify and why it does or doesn’t make sense. Travis, one of the most vocal opponents of Spotify, laid out his objections to the service and lays out what they need to do for it to make sense for everyone.

It’s one of the most scathing critiques of the popular streaming service you’re ever likely to hear, and it’s only on Independent Grind Radio.
