June at the museum
The Nashville Chapter of the Audio Engineering Society pays tribute to the city's recording pioneers. "Nashville would never have become a recording center without the engineers," says Country Music Hall of Fame member Harold Bradley. Beginning in the 1950s, engineers Gene Eichelberger, Lee Hazen, Bill Porter, Glenn Snoddy, and Mort Thomasson recorded thousands of hits by a wide variety of artists, including Jimmy Buffett, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, the Everly Brothers, Dobie Gray, Brenda Lee, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Jim Reeves, Earl Scruggs, Ernest Tubb, Gene Vincent, Neil Young, and countless others. Engineers Dave Harrison and Jim Pugh created new designs in audio recording consoles that revolutionized the industry. This program will honor them by sharing their stories and presenting them with the AES Nashville Lifetime Achievement Award. See new Program Pass guidelines for admission to this program.
