It's Oz

Saw this analog soundboard on a tour of the WHRO Public Broadcasting studios in Norfolk Virginia tonight. Two ladies along for tour were peering into the audio control room when one asked "is this radio or TV?" The second replied "it's Oz."

An Analog Apple

- Before there was Steve Jobs and Apple, Inc. with its iPods, iPhones and iPads there was Apple Records a label founded by The Beatles in 1968, as a division of Apple Corps Ltd. This is a photo of side one of The Beatles album Abbey Road released in 1969. This is my original album purchased in 1970. I still have quite a few of our old vinyl albums from the 70's and 80's. Vinyl was effectively replaced by digital music first by Compact Discs and later by digital downloads. There is still a debate about the superiority of analog recordings over digital but I'm sure I don't want to go back. I prefer having my music completely portable. If the 5000+ songs on my iPod were still on vinyl, I'd need a truck to haul them around and could never park in the sun. Canon 40D, 1/60 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 400, 100mm macro.
