Tradition is we publish a “travel to PAB” episode to help prepare you for and accompany you on your travels to the conference. So, we’ve dusted off our equipment and audio production brains to tell you about the program and social activities. We also recycled some tips from Bruce Murray and John Meadows, and included some concert footage of Uncle Seth and Dala at the original PAB, PAB2006.
Thank you very much to Hunt Club Volkswagen for their generous sponsorship of PAB2012. Details of their specific contribution will be announced Friday evening. Be sure to thank Irene Thomson during PAB (she will be there) and take a few moments to thank HuntClubVW on Twitter.
