Michael Meister

Music Curator

Michael Meister co-founded the record store Texas Records in Santa Monica, which later became the small but influential record label Texas Hotel Records. The label issued records by singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt, Henry Rollins, and Poi Dog Pondering from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. Texas Hotel was voted Hot Record Label of the year by Rolling Stone in 1989. As a close friend of Deirdre O"Donoghue, Meister co-hosted or guest-hosted "SNAP!" on a number of occasions.
