With Brad Davis
In the 1960s, Hootenannys were hot. Hootenanny was
a popular TV show on ABC in the early 1960s.
WTIC came up with the idea of broadcasting a live Hootenanny every
Saturday night from a different high school or college, featuring local talent.
I remember each Saturday afternoon loading the car with
the huge Atlas booms from Studios 1 and 4, and packing up
Neumann U-67 Microphones, with their external power supplies,
plus all the mixing equipment, then driving to the venue.
After the show, we'd return to the studio and
put the booms and mics back. Long days!
Thanks to Ed Brouder, of Man from Mars Productions,
I was able to get five programs from the series.
