Re: [ARSCLIST] Recording Innovations

Prairie Home Companion is keeping this tradition alive - I got to sit onstage for one of their programs last year and their SFX guys are amazing - all live! They make phone calls sounds by talking into a paper cup...

Other companies do it in various locations, too.

The same can be said for the radio-drama sound guys of that era. Material like the Lux Radio Theatre and the Mercury Theatre on the Air/Campbell Playhouse often had complex SFX sequences and music as well as multi-voiced dialog. Sterling's The Radio Manual lays out CBS's custom mixing board for one of their large radio studios, circa early 1940's. It was quite impressive. The amazing thing about the radio guys is that this happened live over the air in many cases, so not only did the sound elements need to go off at the right time and flawlessly, the mix needed to be spot-on as well.
