11th Hour Message - November 2018 News

1-field op

"Hostilities will cease along the whole front from 11 November at 11 o'clock."
Marshal Foch, the French commander of the Allied forces via radio atop the Eiffel Tower.


This week marks 100 years since the end of the war to end all wars, known today as World War One. In 1918, on the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month, 1,500 days of fighting came to an end. The armistice was agreed upon just six hours earlier in a railway car halfway between Paris and the Western Front. What's remarkable is the speed at which most troops were informed of the impending armistice. This war, like in so many other ways, forever changed the world of communication.

"Hello from the children of Planet Earth"
From the gold records aboard the twin Voyager spacecraft


Vinyl is the format that won't die. It'll probably still be around after humans are extinct and our sun has gone supernova. Perhaps in eons, Voyager spacecraft with the golden records aboard will meet distant stars and future vinyl lovers. But in this eon, people will not stop pushing vinyl to its limits. Mad scientists and crazy artists like putting something other than music on it - or in it.

As Seen on TV - September 2018 News

"Treat the recording studio as a laboratory for conceptual thinking — rather than as a mere tool."
Brian Eno


When I was young in the...cough...60s and 70s, the only real glimpses I got inside a recording studio was through television and movies. There was a smattering of documentaries and behind-the-scenes footage of studios and radio stations. I was always straining to see the control board and tape machines, or marveling at the cavernous studio on the other side of the glass. It was absolutely riveting to peek inside them and see how a record was made. The 8-foot long mixing console was often shot through a fisheye lens. Long-haired musicians were sunk down into a couch smoking cigarettes (?) and listening to their masterpiece. And there were close-up shots of that big fat 2-inch tape rolling past the heads of the recorder.

Goodbye to a Friend

Glenn Little in Studio Bsm


Glenn Little passed away over the past weekend of August 18, 2018. Glenn was one of the voice-over artists in our stables, but he was much more than that. A bassist/singer for most of his life, Glenn played in venues from small bars to the White House. He started doing voice-overs in the 1990s, winning international awards right out of the gate. His southern-style storytelling has been heard on local commercials, national television shows, and even in the National Museum of Racing in Saratoga, NY. He will be sadly missed.
