Cheryl Pawelski of Omnivore Recordings: Geeking out with a Grammy winner / BEST OF Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music 2021

By TOM DANTONI // Semi-Portland-based Omnivore Recordings won a Grammy for It’s Such A Good Feeling: The Best of Mister Rogers. Meet label co-founder Cheryl Pawelski and prepare to geek-out with us.

Everybody is doing their best-of 2021’s and why should we be any different?

We’re not. We’re as exhausted at the twists and turns doled out by 2021 as anyone, and gearing up for more of the same in 2022.

Here’s the first of two best-of’s.

Why this one? Because it did not deal with our collective travail, but rather with the joy of music and the happiness of geeking our about it.

From April 22, 2021 when we thought the coast was clear and had gone back to the Artichoke Cafe to record these things.

This makes three times back in the Café at Artichoke and feeling better all the time.

Especially today because I get to geek out about obscure records.

As you may know, the only Portland representation in the winner’s circle at the Grammys this year was when Omnivore Recordings won for It’s Such A Good Feeling: The Best of Mister Rogers.

Omnivore isn’t totally based in Portl and but one of the founders lives here. Her name is Cheryl Pawelski and she is a curator’s curator and a geek’s geek. It’s also her second Grammy.

Their catalog is amazing, just looking at the titles makes me happy.

We’re going to have some fun.  Let’s meet Cheryl.
