My dad is a prolific documentarian. Starting his career in radio and later moving into advertising, he has always been ahead of his time using media to share stories. Not only did he capture hundreds of hours of audio and video of our family home life, he has also interviewed hundreds of famous artists, musicians, politicians, business people and thought leaders during his career. It all started when he got his first portable RCA 5-inch reel-to-reel audio recorder in the early 60’s. This piece is a story about my dad’s impact on my personal lifelong romance with audio.
