Opening Salvo

It’s Showtime!

Welcome to Copper #93!

By the time you read this, the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest will have come and gone. We’ll have a feature on the show in our next issue.

Leading off, Larry Schenbeck schools us on standard time; Dan Schwartz has final thoughts on Woodstock; Roy Hall’s travels take an ugly turn; Anne E. Johnson’s Off the Charts features Las Vegas band, The Killers; J.I. Agnew goes into further detail on pressing records; Woody Woodward looks at NRBQ; Anne’s Trading Eights brings us cuts from jazz guitarist Emily RemlerTom Gibbs’ record reviews go four for five; and in Vintage Whine, I continue the series on how turntables turn.

Ken Fritz concludes the tale of his amazing homebuilt turntable, with Part 4 in this issue. Please be sure to watch the remarkable video at the end of the article.

Copper #93 wraps up with Charles Rodrigues hunting big gameand a scenic Parting Shot from our friend Rudy Radelic.

Our friend Jay Jay French is taking time off to focus on finishing a book—and we wish him the best of luck with that.  Richard Murison will be back in the next issue, along with The Audio Cynic, more cynical than ever.

We may have a surprise or two, as well. Fingers crossed.

I hope I saw you at RMAF. If not—see you next issue!

Leebs.
