What's In Your Ear? - JNR Staff Member Mark Dippel
Mark Dippel is a man of many hats, and when he is not handling Joyful's mail orders, he is working on his own music and preparing for his live shows.
Joyful Nick: What have you been listening to this week?

JN: Tell us a little about what your role is at Joyful Noise.
MD: "I do the Joyful Noise & Lil Bub mail orders and after that I help out with the rest of the fulfillment."
JN: What makes Joyful Noise special to you?
MD: "I've wanted to be in the music industry my whole life, and once I got hired on here at Joyful Noise it was the first time I had really been all the way in the business, so that is something special to me"
JN: What's the craziest thing that has happened in the mail room?
MD: "I got to put together the joyful noise gift bag for George Clinton!"
JN: If you had to describe yourself with a sandwich, how many pickles would it have?
MD: "ZERO! It wouldn't even be on the plate or in the same kitchen, and I'd prefer if they weren't in the same state."
JN: What was the last dream you had?
MD: "It was probably something to do with moving the warehouse"
JN: What kind of car fits your current mood?
MD: "The Back to the Future DeLorean"
JN: How did you get started making music?
