This week's show opens with a big thank you to Lane Sumner for the PSN theme music and our announcer Bob Brooks, the voice of PSN.
This entire show is devoted to a very special guest who's a premiere unsung hero of the business.
John gives us a fascinating insider's look into mixing for television and film. He tells us how "what you've done" is more important than just about anything else, including formal schooling.
He shares with us how he got his start in the business, which is a blueprint for anyone looking to get started with any type of commercial studio today. He also outlines some of the unique challenges with creating mixes where the quality of the final presentation is in the hands of others who might not be particularly skilled in sound production.
Mike closes the show with an exciting announcement!
John is joining PSN as a regular field correspondent. His experience and expertise will be invaluable to you as he shares news and tidbits from inside the business. He'll also be presenting Master Classes on standard and surround sound mixing.
Since this show ran long, the answer to last week's trivia question has been postponed until next week. That's not necessarily a bad thing as no one has answered it correctly yet. So, you have one more week to get your answer in by e-mail. Here's the question again:
This Week's Trivia Question:
What was the first #1 hit to have a playing time of more than four minutes?
See you next week!
