    Alcove Audio Has Returned - sort of...

    Greetings IndieTalkers! Yes, it has been a while. Lots of news none of it good. First... I was insulted, infuriated, humiliated and outraged that anyone would think that I needed help. I am humbled, honored and privileged to have such caring, warm friends out there. Truly, I am touched to...

    Finito

    Hey there, IndieTalkers. I am now officially out of business. My studio has been flooded again. I did manage to get the expansive equipment out; it now occupies our living room. However, the studio and control room are a complete loss as are all of the Foley props and other misc. items. If...

    WOW!!!!! That's really weird!

    I just stepped outside to get something from our (detached) garage, and IT WAS FRIGGIN' SNOWING! Well, kind of...... It was frozen precipitation that came down hard and fast like hail, but was the consistency of snow; so it was probably rain that froze on the way down. It only lasted ten...

    RIP Keith Emerson

    Since he did score a few films I guess he qualifies for a film site. Keith Emerson was a boyhood hero and was one of the reasons I pursued a music career. He made keyboards cool and was considered to the Hammond Organ what Jimi Hendrix was to the Stratocaster. In fact, prior to his death...
