    Florida Storm

    The panhandle of Florida, from Tallahassee to Destin is largely without power. The rest of the state is pretty much as normal as Florida gets. Thanks for thinking of us. Al

    Lavs for ties

    "I'm ALWAYS looking and the giant pimple under a t-shirt drives me nuts. Oh and don't even think of pushing it up in the knot just before we roll Ms. Wardrobe. I'll cut off your fingers." Good to see retirement has not dimmed your passion for sound Doug, carry on. Al

    Fantasy Studios RIP

    "A studio ain't nothing but bricks and mortar, it's the people who make the magic" Jerry Wexler A studio used to be where the technology was, now you have all those abilities on your phone. Starday King Studios were state of the art mid 1950's recording studio in Nashville, James Brown recorded here. It was located on a busy truck route around Nashville. It was busy and a lot of local engineers learned their chops working here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starday-King_Sound_Studios Starday King today The history of the studio

    RIP Burt Reynolds

    I owe Burt Reynolds big time. I was changing my career focus from music recording to production sound when he brought BL Stryker to Florida in the late 80's. I worked 12 - 2 hour movies with him that turned out to be my location sound grad school. A gentle man, I never heard him yell unless it was in the script. Thank you Burt.

    Studio Sound Magazine Sept 1984 Issue

    Long ago and far way there were no internets to learn from. We had magazines, Recording Engineer/Producer, Mix, and Studio Sound. I was rooting around and found this Studio Sound article about LSI Recording in Nashville, the studio I spent years and a marriage working in. I've been trying to post it here but my files were too large. I mentioned this on Jan's Sounderday this morning and John B. found the issue online. A time capsule of sound recording 1984 with my 15 seconds of fame starting on p 38. https://www.americanradiohistory.com/Archive-Studio-Sound/80s/Studio-Sound-1984-09.pdf .
