Video Of Doug McGee's Bejing Apartment Studio:
"Just wanted to drop you this link to a mini documentary on the construction of my current studio. All of the sound treatment was due to the info I’ve gleaned off of Ethan Winner’s site throughout the years. I was lucky enough to come across his articles about ten years ago when I was just starting out in this here project studio thing. I was thrilled to hear him on your show. I hope that you and your listeners enjoy this video. Feel free to copy any of the ideas in the construction of the studio."

This week Dave Criddle joins PSN as a contributing field correspondent.

Bob Lefsetz is a Santa Monica-based music-industry figure, who has worked previously as an entertainment business attorney and as a consultant to major record labels. Perhaps he's best known as the author of The Lefsetz Letter, which was first produced as a hard copy publication and is now a free e-mail newsletter. In it he addresses the issues that are at the core of the music business today: downloading, copy protection, pricing and the music itself.
His latest keynote address in Australia has some particularly interesting incite on the creation and distribution of music in this digital age. Enjoy this excerpt and I'm sure you'll take something away from it that will benefit you directly in your studio.

A: Mary Had A Little Lamb!
We had a fantastic turnout this week. Mostly all correct answers and many without having to Google!
