Founded in 2010, Murfie was a unique streaming service that provided both physical and cloud-based storage for a user's physical music collection. The company lasted for nine years before suddenly announcing its closure, only to be resurrected just weeks later by new owner John Fenley.

Murfie co-founder Preston Austin joins me first, to talk about the founding of the company and the original concepts behind it, as well as his current role as CEO of Rabble and its associated (and very cool!) Musicat service.

I then chat with John Fenley to find out what led to him buying what appeared to be a failed company, and his plans to restore all of its services to an increasingly anxious user base.
