Episode #400 – Some Personal Studio Horror Stories

We’ve hit a milestone today with Episode 400 so I’m going to change things up a little.

There’s new theme music (I’m not sure if I like it – if you have something better please send it), and the upcoming episodes this year will be more theme-based. First up will be a deep-dive into immersive audio as soon as the new year rolls around.

By popular demand, this episode is dedicated to a few of my personal studio horror stories, although some are actually about some good experiences (like the Frank Zappa stories) too.

During the episode I covered some early sessions that did not go well (and how I handled them badly too), dipping my toe into commercials and jingles, fun times with Frank Zappa, having some songs on a hit TV show (but paying the price), a true Hollywood TV star moment (not), not getting paid and not getting credit, celebrity tapes exploding, and much more.

Thank you kindly for all your support and for listening all these years. I hope to see you back for the next 400!
