We’re antsy to announce that WMSE’s live broadcast and recording studio renovation is in the final stretch. Billy has worked really hard to make sure he researched the heck out of the best options given the budget you helped us create by contributing to the Keep Live Music on WMSE campaign. Now, all the parts and gear have arrived and the work is in progress. He’ll be here each day this week, tweaking and testing. He says, “Well… the old equipment is in a WELL deserved retirement after 13 years of dedicated service and more than 1500 bands. The new snake is installed and the studio awaits a fresh coat of paint. Once that happens, we will start installing the new gear. We’re still waiting on the new Elite Core headphone mixers which should arrive soon and anticipate that Local/Live will be up and running again on May 29.”
If that sounds exciting, that’s because it is! We all want to say thanks again for supporting the campaign — we can’t wait to start utilizing the new studio and have the live music reaching your ears, once again! Stay tuned for progress updates and for details about the official re-launch of the studio. It’ll all begin with next week’s Local/live guest, Panalure.
