Beginning Tuesday, Sonic 102 Edmonton’s Layne Mitchell will begin hosting his afternoon show from his home studio (see photo.)
About 5 years ago, I bought the old Studer broadcast console that used to be in the CBC control room and installed it in my basement. I’ve voiced thousands of commercials and mixed hundreds of SONiC Sessions through it. Now thanks to the recent global pandemic, it may see another live radio broadcast. I jacked into one of its spare distribution amplifiers, ran the output through a stepdown transformer and then a -40db pad... and straight into my iPhone. I can literally broadcast my afternoon show from my basement!
