Love Talking Shop - Audio / Video Pros

Okay I know it's going to sound silly.
Here I am on a sexual networking site.

But honestly I'd rather talk shop and how it became my life long career.

Back around 1979 I started working in various recording studios in NYC.
Days of 2" audio tape and 24 CH mixing consoles (mostly Neve & SSL boards).
Studer tape machines. U87 Neumann Mics - Racks & Racks of processing gear.

I also mixed live sound for various concerts. Plus recorded music for Radio Syndication Firms.
Was also a member of the AES for many years.

In '92 I left the Audio Recording industry.
That year I became so involved in Video

Now being in the DC/Northern VA area. I started a video/multimedia firm
Working with all the Broadcast video formats:
1" video tape, 3/4 Umatic, Beta SP, Digi Beta, mini DV, DVCam, DVC Pro.
D-2, You get the idea.

Gave it all up in 2011 and moved to the Jersey Shore.

If you were in the Pro Audio / Video biz? Let's talk shop...

While Watching My Video, I Was Clicking Away

Just finished playing around with my laptop and my Nikon 35mm Camera.

Watching a couple of my videos on AdultFriendFinder While I was clicking away.

Thinking about that song "Kodachrome" while messing around.

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Here's the final product.

What is it with that morning cup of coffee...

It's such a great way to start the day.

Without having to rush anywhere, it gives you time to think and enjoy..

also, gives you time to think about what you want your future Blog's to be about.

Have a wonderful day,

So not what everyone's thinking...

But I'm making this day a holiday for me too.

I was the President of a large Multimedia / Broadcast Video Firm just outside of Washington, DC in Northern VA for many years.

Closed it down in 2010 / 2011ish to really enjoy life.

Now thinking on how I'll spend this special day...

Happy Holidays to all company Presidents

Living at the Jersey shore during the Winter time ...it's quiet.

Gives you a lot of time to think.

I moved to Atlantic City back in 2011, after living 27 years in Fairfax County VA.

Now thinking how much I loved Virginia. I was right outside of Washington, DC.

All those years I spent in Virginia, I either lived in Reston or Burke.

I was the owner of a large Multimedia Firm in Springfield, VA.

I was also a hostess at a place called the Hideaway South (see photo)

Closed down the Multimedia company in 2010, sold my home in 2011.

Always thinking I wanted to live at a beach. I picked Atlantic City since I'm originally from Jersey (But central Jersey).

Winters are way to cold here for my liking.

Throughout this year I'm looking for my next move.

As of now it looks like it will be the OBX area of NC.

First Half of My Career (Music)

Now semi retired...

Looking back at my career & work history

I was lucky enough to turn my hobbies into my life long career.

Part 1;

Audio Engineering
Live Sound Mixing Engineer
Recording Engineer
Radio Programmer ( Adult Contemporary Format)

This blog is more-or-less about the Radio Programming of the AC Format.

The Adult Contemporary format back in the 70's and 80's Consisted of artist such as Billy Joel, Elton John, Barbara Streisand, Paul Anka, Sheena Easton etc...

My job was to pick the song/artist and create a playlist.

Each playlist was 30 minutes in length, consisting of two 15 minute segments.

After the list was created. I would record the cuts onto Reel-to-Reel tapes.
Have copies made of these tapes and sending them out to various Radio Stations throughout the US.

Part of my job was to hang out in the city of where each station was playing our music. Making sure the station played the songs in the order that was on the list I created.

I would have so much fun with this. I would hang out and bars and restaurants That had the station on and say to those working... I bet you I can tell you what song comes on next.

Not telling them what I do.

After we laughed about it I would tell them what I do and show them my playlist.

Not A Beach Day...

The rain and warm temps from yesterday are gone.

Today is a blue sky, but cold

To cold for the beach. No one is out here.

Living here, I'm doing my best to enjoy the moment before the boardwalk and beach area get's packed with visitors.

I always wanted a Jeep for the beach. Never had one.

Enjoy your Saturday...

Warm Temps ...But Rainy

Warm Temps ...But Rainy!

I'll take this type of day over a cold sunny day during the Winter. Thinking it hit around 60 degrees today. It was a nice little change, but the temps will be back in the 30's tomorrow.

As we enter the evening hours the temps are dropping.

Today's top story.

A guest staying on the 44th floor of Tropicana Casino & Hotel caused a fire. He created a Meth Lab in his hotel room. 4 floors had to be evacuated.

The guy was caught on Pacific Ave. which is block from the boardwalk.

Why couldn't the guy stay at some trashy motel. Tropicana is a beautiful place here in AC.

***Was on the beach around 5 pm today, just watching a guy paddle boarding. Thinking isn't it to cold? Guess not for him.

Also just watching some ship - Not sure what type...

With the temps now dropping less people on the Atlantic City boardwalk.

Overall a pretty good day. Hope your day was good...

Have a good weekend.

I'm sure I'll post something tomorrow, just don't know what...

~Holly
