Front Page Flo

In June we traveled to the University of Akron's Daum Theatre to record the "staged reading" of Larry Kass' musical "Front Page Flo." The performance was choreographed by Tony-nominated George Pinney and was under the direction of music director Terry LaBolt. Larry is a long time friend of Audio, and we have recorded and provided audio for the radio broadcast of his "Mighty Wurlitzer Radio Hour" for many years. For this recording NAC Technologies supplied wireless head-worn mics for the cast and the show was multi-tracked using our Dante based recording rig. We mixed the recordings of the 2 performances down at the studio, and sent them for a Blu-Ray release by Larry's Razzmatazz Productions. You can also watch the full performance on YouTube ...

The Mighty Wurlitzer Radio Hour -

"When it comes to perfection in audio recording, Bruce Gigax is in a class by himself. Not only does he bring a wealth of experience of audio technology to his craft, but also a keen sense of music since he is a trained college educated musician.


He is patient, meticulous about achieving the proper balance of a large ensemble, and tackles each task with perseverance that drives him to create the very best product for the listener.  


Bruce is keenly attuned to the type of sound that I require on a complex show involving a large vintage Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ and a group of 8-10 vocalists, a daunting task to say the least. On a personal level, Bruce is easy to work with, very accommodating of his time and abilities, and timely in turning out the final product. In my opinion, he is simply the best."

Robert Conrad President, WCLV


"WCLV, Cleveland's 50 year old classical radio station, has worked with Audio Recording on The Cleveland Orchestra radio broadcasts since 1965. Bruce Gigax has been the Audio Supervisor for the Orchestra for over three decades.


His duties include the recording and editing of at least three concerts per week during the Severance seasons and two per week during the Blossom Music Festivals, plus the regular Severance Hall Saturday night live broadcasts on WCLV.


The results have been lauded by stations around the world, by respected audio professionals, by the musicians of the Orchestra and by listeners.  WCLV is proud of our decades long association with Bruce, Reed Wheeler and Audio Recordings."
