I am lucky.

When I was younger, I used to dream about being a sound engineer, quite an unusual profession for a girl in the early 80s (or any time for that matter).  I used to watch my dad mix music and record local artists.  He was always splicing together reel-to-reel tapes and doing all kinds of musical things that I found fascinating.  I would sneak up to the music room in our house, and he would always welcome me and let me watch.  He created in me a deep love of music that will always be with me.

I never did become a sound engineer.

But in November of 2006, Tony and I began hosting a pop music quiz at a local venue, first Elliott’s Revue, and for the past 6 years or so The Garage.  One of my jobs at the quiz is doing the sound.  So I get to sit in front of the mixing desk and live out my dream of being a sound engineer, albeit a small-scale one.

It thrills me more than I can say…

Here are some photos from our quiz tonight.  It was our Christmas quiz and we got to spend it with some wonderful folks who have supported us for many years.
