In fun, easy-to-understand language Veronika Kalmar takes you step-by-step through the intricate process of running a label from the moment you think about entering the biz until your first CD, vinyl single, or demo tape rolls off the press. Topics covered include:

Avoiding the most common pitfalls of a new label
And even tells you when it's time to sell out to "the man."
