episode #100 with steve remote from aurasonic ltd is live!

  Well, this is IT! The big 100!     Thank you so much for tuning-in and joining me on this epic journey of bringing you the stories behind the men and women who make the music and film industry tick day after day, night after night, mile after mile.    A dreamer, an innovator, and a self-proclaimed procrastinator, Steve Remote doubled-down on his career, and at the age of eighteen years old, knew his destiny lay in following his own path, and forging a career for himself in the audio industry. He reasoned that the money he would spend on school would serve him better if spent on recording equipment to capture some of New York’s most daring bands of the 1970’s.    Since that time Steve has built a formidable fleet of mobile recording trucks and has captured artists ranging from The Band Called Fuse, Dropkick Murphy’s, Blink 182, Wilco, New York Dolls, and many more.    Today’s episode is sponsored by    Airturn   ,    ShowPro Beard Co.   , and    Gig-Gear   .

Video Interview with LUCIE BARINKOVA FoH ENGINEER for RZA, SPOON, THE B52'S, TOM TOM CLUB, THUNDERCAT, AND MORE!

LUCIE BARINKOVA COVER.jpg

While I was in Los Angeles for the NAMM show, I had the privilege of sitting down with FOH Engineer Lucie Barinkova to chat with her about her career and hear about her incredible childhood, growing up in Czechoslovakia, and her families’ eventual escape to an Austrian refugee camp in 1989.

Lucie’s baptism into the world of live sound came at age 17, when her boyfriend left alone her to mix the Punk band Hoi Polloi. Three painful feedback-filled hours later she was hooked, and vowed to redeem herself, which she has successfully done, touring with artists such as RZA from Wutang, Odesza, Spoon, Banks & Steelz, Tom Tom Club, The B52’s, and Thundercat.

Video Interview live with Toni Fishman Founder of telefunken elektroakustik

One could argue that if it were not for an unfortunate mishap at Joni Mitchell's home studio, Toni Fishman may never have had the opportunity to re-launch the Telefunken brand. By reverse-engineering the guts of a badly burned microphone from Mitchell's home studio, Toni was able to not only bring the mic back to life, but realized there was a market for people who owned the same microphones and needed them serviced. It all came down to one small plastic switch. Born and raised in Connecticut, Toni spent many years on the road with various bands archiving live shows and acquiring enough gear to build and maintain his own home studio. His passion for sound and the desire to deliver the best audio experience possible led him on his unbelievable journey re-visualizing the Telefunken brand, earning him the respect of his peers. But don't just take their word for it, ask the growing legion of satisfied customers.
