Feature Guest - Roger Shepherd - Flying Nun founder

From Nine To Noon, 10:08 am on 13 December 2010

Founder of influential independent NZ music label Flying Nun. He started it in Christchurch in 1981 and it was home to legendary acts such as The 3Ds, The Clean, The Chills, and Straitjacket Fits. It eventually was sold to a bigger, multinational company, but late last year he bought it back. How did he do it? What's changed over the years, both for the label and the music industry? And what's next for Flying Nun?
