Subject: RE: Tech: PA goes berserk
It’s difficult, if not impossible, to diagnose what might have been responsible but my guess would be a piece of old and badly maintained (unstable) equipment.

Whilst we’re on the subject of radio mics, I was once setting up a system for a musical and a roadie was on stage saying “one - two”, “one - two”, “thirty six”, “twenty eight”, “forty five” etc etc when the rear door of the theatre burst open and in came an angry man asking if we were using a radio mic? “Yes” said the roadie, “six of them”. “Well I’m the bingo caller from over the road and it’s breaking through my system” he said. “We’ve got a license for ours” said the roadie “have you?” at which point he retreated never to be seen again!
