Bill Hanley and John Kane

“Hanley adapted and innovated as he went along, and where something didn’t work or serve his needs he created it.” – John Kane


What better way to celebrate the 50th episode of ROADIE FREE RADIO than to have legendary sound engineer Bill Hanley join me from the stage at Daryl's House Club.

An innovator, leader, and rebel, Hanley is responsible for so many advancements in the area of live sound reinforcement that he's known affectionately as the "father of festival sound."

Based in Medford, Massachusetts, Hanley Sound Corporation handled audio responsibilities for the Remains, The Newport Jazz Festival, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and most notably, the Woodstock music festival of 1969.

Also joining us is author & filmmaker John Kane, who has devoted the last several years to researching and documenting the many incredible accomplishments that Hanley achieved over the course of his prolific career.
