NYC – Greenwich Village: Electric Lady Studios

Image by wallyg
Designed by De Stijl member and Juliard’s then theater director, Frederick Kiesler, 52 West 8th Street’s first occupant was the Film Guild Cinema, which opened in 1929. Shortly after, Rudy Valley’s country-western nightclub, the Village Barn, opened in the basement where it honky-tonked for 30-plus years. Hans Hoffman, father of the "push pull" color theory and abstract expressionism, lived, painted and taught here from 1938 to 1958.

When The Generation Club, which replaced the Village Barn closed in 1968, Jimi Hendrix and his manager, Mike Jeffrey, bought the space for k with the intention of turning it into a club of their own. His accountant, however, convinced him that owning a studio would be more fiscally sound–predating the Beatles’ Abbey Road in an era when label owned and operated studios were the norm. Hendrix commissioned an upstart out of Princeton, John Storyk to architect the studio with the instructions for "soft", "curvaceous" and wherever possible "no right angles." Storyk would go one to develop over 2,000 studios, radio stations, clubs and theaters.

Construction lasted nearly twice as long and cost twice as much as expected, but Hendrix didn’t wait to start tracking recordings. Nearly 30 songs were recorded prior during this time, including most of "First Rays of the New Rising Sun" and hours of jams with Steve Winwood and Chris Wood of Traffic. Electric Lady Studios officially opened on August 26, 1970. That same night, Jimi left for England to play the Isle Wright Festival and only thirteen days later, was pronounced dead at the age of 27.

Under Director of Engineering, Eddie Kramer, Electric Lady would go on to be one of the premier recording spots of the early 70’s with artists like Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Curtis Mayfield, David Bowie, John Lennon, Peter Frampton, Diane Warwick, Carley Simon, Kiss, Billy Coham, and Lena Horne taking up residence.

In the 1970’s, the 8th Street Playhouse took over the space upstairs, dedicated to independent film like its predecessor. It became the first true "screening" theater…no curtains or stage, just a screen. It also became the first theater to offer a midnight film seven days a week. By its closing in 1992, it was perhaps most famous for its 15 year-run of twice-weekly midnight screenings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Today the space is divided between indepndent video rental store, TLA Video, and off-Broadway theater, The Independent. TLA stands for the Theater of Living Arts and was founded by Andre Gregory of My Dinner with Andre.

Electric Lady Studios continues to prosper as Manhattan’s oldest existing recording facility. The client list has grown more impressive with each passing year. A laundry list of those to lay tracks includes the White Stripes, Radiohead, U2, Lou Reed, Michael Jackson, Guns N’ Roses, Mariah Carey, Prince, Madonna, Santana, Eric Clapton, Al Green, Jay-Z, Frank Zappa, The Notorious B.I.G., Bjork, Placido Domingo, Whitney Houston, The Beastie Boys, Bjork, Aretha Franklin, The Roots, Weezer, Common, AC/DC, Alicia Keys, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Al Green, the Dave Matthews Band, and Placido Domingo.

As I know, it’s illegal to use an Fm transmitter in China at present.In some other countries, it’s legal, but not China. And about this, you can search some relative information in China’s laws and regulations. By the way, you can check the http://www.fmheroes.com, which sell the fm station transmitters, maybe your answer lies there…

KLS sticker on Lionel Hampton 78

Image by bunky’s pickle
Recorded for RCA-Victor April 14, 1937. The sticker does not refer to Hollywood’s Warner Brothers, but to Stafford and Eugene Warner, whose radio station began as a wireless outfit run out of their radio supply store in Oakland, California. Around 1921 they began playing records over the air as KLS, and they became one of the most successful stations in the Bay Area. The "Not Licensed for Radio Broadcast" warning was probably disregarded; in fact in August of 1937, bandleader Fred Waring won a case against a station in Philadelphia for playing his records that were marked as such. Of course all the major record companies were owned by media congloms (RCA, maker of radios, having bought out Victor in 1929) so things were bound to shift.

Illegally downloaded music may be of poor quality

Image by Irregular Shed
From a display of MP3 players in Tesco. I like that it may be of poor quality – clearly Radio 1 have been getting all their songs off Kazaa (or whatever the youth use these days). Commercial radio stations have got theirs from, I dunno, Audio Galaxy or something.

Q&A: How much for a tv broadcast station HD camera?

Question by blugoo: How much for a tv broadcast station HD camera?
How much for a tv broadcast station HD camera?
Was wondering this because a lot of people say converting to HD is very expensive for broadcasters,so how much does it cost for an HDTV camera like NBC or CBS uses?Thanx.

Best answer:

Answer by FriedRice
Depends, I know the ones at the Olympics cost like over $ 5,000 each. However, one can assume that since HD uses a higher powered lens and better technology the price will be higher than the normal TV right now.

Just Married: Sharon Papo & Amber Weiss

Image by Marc Love
Sharon Papo & Amber Weiss
=========================
I went down to City Hall on my lunch break on the first official full day that gay & lesbian couples could get married in California and took photos of various weddings taking place throughout the building.

City Hall set up designated ceremony locations all over the place in the upstairs part of the building. After a couple was officially married, they’d walk down the grand staircase together and everyone who was there would cheer and clap for them.

Many of these couples had flown in last minute from states all over the country to finally make official the committed relationships that they’ve been in for years and decades.

Outside City Hall were supporters with large signs delivering messages of love and support. Other people brought bouquets of flowers to give to each couple as they left the building. And several radio stations setup remote broadcasting booths there in front of City Hall. In particular, Energy 92.7 FM (the local dance station) brought cake and champagne to hand out to all the people celebrating their new lives together. There was not a single protestor.

It was really a touching event.
