Those nice people at Sound On Sound magazine have been in contact and I was happy to help them with a forthcoming article they are doing about Hastings Pier. They also sent us these very interesting links about 70s-era sound/PA equipment to share with our group. – A Charlie Watkins retrospective (he of Watkins / WEM fame) – A piece about the Isle Of Wight live sound An interview with Bob Pridden (The Who’s live sound engineer since the very beginning)

Pete Fisher… coincidentally this is what I looked at yesterday when I posted the clip of Taste at the IOW festival, and wanted to find out more about the Wem PA system…good read!

Roy Penfold… That used to be essential reading back in the day. Is it still available? I know there is the website but haven’t seen the magazine anywhere for a long time.

Alan Esdaile… Magazine is still available Roy.

Pete Fisher… And on Facebook.
