Jason Hughes - El Jefe

posted by on May 8 at 10:25 AM

Jason Hughes, co-owner / chief boss director of Sonic Boom Records and Sonic Boom Recordings, sits, speaks, and bequeaths wisdom.

Discussion includes the new Sonic Boom Recordings release from Graig Markel and the repress of Death Cab for Cutie’s, Something About Airplanes. Also, he and employees talk about what’s been selling, what sells in the summer, cd thieves, and what they do to people that drop stink bombs in the store. Then, 80’s hair metal band, Ratt and the Ratt – Dub connection.

Jason announces Sonic Boom’s 10 year anniversary party at the Showbox. Ratt may play. Nothing’s confirmed.

Jason is so unbelievably nice and cool that I don't even question how unbelievably nice and cool he is. I hope the label dominates '07 and '08! XOXO

Great video! I have a hard cover RATT photo book that you *need* to see. I think they have socks stuffed in their spandex....
