About McMerkin

Drummer, guitar, (keys and bass purely for fill-in), former radio and recording engineer, sound reinforcement man, etc.

Wrote songs long ago, nothing in recent years. Recorded them on mono sound on sound, two linked stereo reel to reels or Teac 4 channel. Just for fun, to see if I could do it. Many experiments were quite flawed, one or two didn't turn out too badly.

Nowadays I record on Audacity on a computer, and the quality and ease of use is so much better,thuough I do miss the days of tape...
