Screen shot 2011-06-21 at June 21  11.24.20While Mark battled his spotty connection at the “No Bandwidth Motel” in San Diego, Tod Maffin joined Bob (and sometimes Mark) to discuss being a PAB “Lifer”, and also to take a look at how the space has progressed in the last 6 years.

  • PAB2011 planning underway
  • Finding a new co-host for IHR
  • Derek’s music (also available on iTunes and CDBaby, a bargain at any price)

  • Replacing the batteries in your M-Audio Microtrack recorders (now discontinued)
