Manchester Central chats to Manchester-based music label in latest podcast episode

19th March 2021, 10:56 am

The third episode of ‘Central Chat: Spotlight On’, a spin-off series of Manchester Central’s pioneering podcast, went live this week.

Hosted by Digital Communications Executive, Samantha Pike-Devlin, episode two features Mark Lippmann – CEO of Scruff of the Neck – an award-winning Manchester based music group renowned for its UK live promotions, record label, publishing company and creative services businesses.

As a company that manages up and coming music artists, a huge majority of the work Scruff of the Neck do is centered on live events, gigs, concerts and performances so, when the pandemic took over the world last year, Mark and his team had to put their heads together and come up with innovative ideas to ensure the business survived ‘the new normal’.

The artists that Scruff of the Neck represent have appeared on stages across the world, including SXSW festival in Texas and New Colossus in New York, so the episode also highlights how Manchester is viewed by people across the world and what makes it so special.

You can listen to the new podcast episode at or by searching ‘Central Chat’ on iTunes, Spotify and all other podcast providers.

Manchester Central is calling for event professionals or businesses across the UK to get in touch if they’re interested in being featured on the podcast.
