Here is the long lost episode of the
program from 1987. In this segment I show how to sample with our BBC’s “Science in Action” Fairlight CMI Series III in Studio 5 at AIR Studios Oxford Street.
We sold the Series III to J. J. Jeczalik of the Art of Noise a few weeks after taping this episode! I wonder why!

Off we went to
for a mixing session with Rancho Encino over the weekend! Skip Saylor
Skip and Ian, and the studio, and the Rancho, and the Thai restaurant Mustang, and the exceptional facilities, paled in comparison to the great sound they gave to
Nick Wood‘s music!
We’re almost ready for mastering!
John Jones, Nick Wood and Skip Saylor at the SSL!

The 7th Annual Producers & Engineers Wing Grammy celebration at the
Village Studios honoring Neil Young was a special night.

I shot this short clip of the introductory part of
Neil’s speech to show the atmosphere in the ballroom. It was fantastic!
Dave Mathews came out and played a couple of Neil’s songs.
And here is one of the traditional photos many of us take at these events.
