When I was in school I took worthless classes like Calculus and Sociology, but the students at Columbia College in Chicago are doing it right. They are taking a class on running a record label. Granted, I put on a fair number of shows, volunteered at a co-op record store and helped run an illegal club when I was in college, but I never got any class credit for those activities. Their record label is AEMMP Records and they just put out their first release “Chompilation.” The stand-out track on the comp is Propeller Plane by Chicago’s Pet Lions which I have posted here.

You can find out more about the label and the class on their website here.
