TWiRT 225 - Every Broadcast is a Remote - with Bob Page

Meet Bob Page, the studio manager with two studios and no transmitter.  With a revolving door for the on-air talent.  And for whom every single broadcast shift is a “remote.”   Bob manages the Radio Broadcast Center at Universal Studios, Florida.  He and Jason Mercurio manage, train, facilitate, troubleshoot, connect, and do whatever else is needed to get from 2 to 5 broadcasts on the air each day from these spectacular studios.  

We experienced some tech difficulties during the broadcast.  Naturally, the high-speed Internet link checked out perfectly before the broadcast.  But, it went dead and we had to use a backup Internet connection.  Quality wasn’t so good, but Bob Page’s interview, along with Chris Tobin’s comments, are worth watching or listening to.
