I have 50 years experience designing, building and maintaining sound and recording facilities. Quality control supervisor of a tape manufacturing and high speed duplication company.
20 years of on air experience and producer of syndicated radio programming... and a 5 year stint as member Board of Directors of a Public Access TV Corporation.
Much like Steven Barr I dont know much on paper at 70 years old but Im still active in analog digital production and restoration.
Yea Id like a couple year vacation stint doing something in New Zealand involving setting up a digital library.
Still dreaming of more interesting years.
