Episode 99 features an interview with Chris Strachwitz who founded Arhoolie Records in 1960 and despite now being in his late 80’s is still in business. Chris tells us about his passion for field recordings andArhoolie’s massive catalogue of American and Mexican music, Cajun, zydeco, bluegrass and blues - recordings that contain the culture of the people who make them. Frequently described as one of the great American record labels, Strachwitz has been on a mission in recent years digitizing his extensive catalogue and preserving these audio recordings for future generations.
