Supertone’s Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell chat about the work of multi-award winning recording engineer and producer Tom Dowd.
Tom helped to shape the artists with whom he worked, together creating some of the world's greatest popular music recordings. He was highly influential in creating the sound of the second half of the 20th Century and is credited as the engineer who popularised both the eight-track recording system for commercial music and the use of 'stereophonic' sound.
The show features music by Ray Charles, John Coltrane, The Drifters, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Wilson Pickett, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jo Jo Gunn, Dusty Springfield and Cream.
An enlightening and fun show for songwriters, music lovers, engineers and producers!
