Turning the Tables with Jocelynn Pryor from AMPED


Dust off your record players, because it's time to talk vinyl—and CDs and cassettes! The pandemic has brought challenges across the music industry for retailers, manufacturers, and distributors of physical music formats, but AMPED hasn’t missed a beat!

Irregular host Tristra Newyear Yeager sits down with Jocelynn Pryor to discuss how AMPED is connecting independent artists and local retailers with effective ecommerce networks and distribution strategies, including production of collectible variants, to meet the current growing demand. Jocelynn explores how the cultural shift to items of nostalgia and tangible engagement during lockdown have influenced the recent explosion of vinyl. Will we be listening to sea shanties on vinyl soon? Find out on this week’s episode.
