Owen Podcast Series: Ben Blackwell, Third Man Records

We at the Owen Podcast Series tried not to veer into “annoying fanboy” territory, but we got dangerously close as we welcomed Ben Blackwell, the Pinball Wizard and Director of Operations at Nashville’s illustrious Third Man Records, to the show. Ben, a music industry “lifer”, has been a drummer in The Dirtbombs since he was 17 and joined Jack White’s label to direct their vinyl production operations in 2009. He shares his opinions on vinyl’s current resurgence in popularity, the innovation that seems to constantly stream out of Third Man, and what we can expect from the label in 2011.

About Blake Knight

I am a born and raised West Texan (which I am finding out means nothing if you don't live in Texas... just imagine Friday Night Lights), with a natural passion for marketing and digital media. Some nifty little tidbits about me: professional musician, vinyl record seller/buyer, international traveler, begrudging half-marathoner, scuba diver, self-proclaimed tech geek, freelance designer and photographer. I also spend my time in a mostly losing battle for Mayorship of Owen.
