Most of you know I'm a woman. I say that because a few of you don't know. Sure I talk about audio, built a recording studio 40 years ago and talk about sports all the time. But, at the end of the day, I'm the daughter to my father who inspired and taught me early on to have an appreciation for audio and sports.
I've told the story before about how I was the only girl the boys let play baseball on their team when I was 10... and how my dad bought me a reel to reel Sears tape machine at about the same age. You've heard the stories of him showing me how his stereo system worked and the 'echo' knob in it.
But maybe more than that he taught me how to work with ideas and present them to people. He taught me how to be enthusiastic about things that I believed in. Dad was a fireman. He also taught me how to be patient, alert and observe while holding hands when people are in crisis... which is most of the time when artists are in the studio.
Dad is going to be 93 next month. He's still anxious to get around and learn new things. I have to pry him away from wanting to fix my plumbing... which is one of the things I never wanted to learn from him. You can take the tools away from the plumber, but you can stop them from wanting to fix things. :)
Happy Father's Day, DAD! I'm so proud to be your daughter!
