Burger Records was a garage rock record label in Orange County that built its brand on bringing rock-and-roll to teens and putting the spotlight on underground bands. It folded in July after a wave of sexual assault and misconduct allegations were posted on social media that involved members of more than a dozen bands on the label.

Today’s story will dive into the rise and fall of Burger Records. We’ll hear from women who were abused by men on the label and from one of the former co-owners of the label. We’ll also hear what the music industry can do to prevent sexual assault — from labels to venues to bandmates.
