Later, joining us is Lisa Fancher, creator, owner and operator of Frontier Records, among the first to tap into the Los Angeles punk scene. Frontier Records which marks it’s 30 anniversary, introduced the world to Suicidal Tendencies, The Adolescents, The Circle Jerks, TSOL, the Weirdos and more.

Through exploring Lisa Francher’s journey in the music industry-we will examine what it takes to make it, thrive, and survive, as well as the responsibilities and, influence, of a woman in a male dominated industry particularly during the 80’s LA/OC punk scene-which might be argued had a sexist veil over it’s image of an artistic liberation from an oppressive culture.
