I'm sure he said either Shure or AKG.


What is Bruce up to these days, location audio for the Food Network?

Dont get me wrong man I have alot of respect for the dude, he was kinda like a mentor to me back when I started. I could always call him with a question. This was long before the days of interweb. He had great teaching skills as well. Last I heard he actually was doing location audio for a show on the food network.
He did a clinic in Saint John once, Darryl and JP from Fundy attented, they loved it.

Yes, I too had a great deal of respect for the dude. There was no question that I could put to him that he didn't know the answer. I learned a lot from him. Have never heard of him since though.
