B & R Rules

(3 stars)

1. Do NOT put your own voice on the air check -e.g., as intro. We can read and you are not Artie Schirmerhorn 2. Do a little minor EQ before you trudge out a poor sound quality air check. This one has a 60 Hz hum -take it out! Lift at 2kHz -6 kHz a tad. You don'y need RCA Studio B in NYC to do this.
