Subject: RE: Tech: PA goes berserk
Doesn’t have to be a radio mic. We once featured in a review in the Telegraph for a soundcheck! I was sorting the sound for a musical in a large opera theatre whilst the BBC were broadcasting a chamber orchestral concert from the studio theatre next door. Apparently, the main problem was the drums. Not really our problem, you shouldn’t rent out a theatre for a rock musical and expect peace and quiet!

Not quite as funny as a mates ceilidh band which was playing a miners gala in Rotherham. A bloke from next door came in to complain that he could hear the drums over ths sound of his TV. They invited him in, largely to prove that they didn’t have a drummer, but, standing outside, even they could hear drums. Bruce Springsteen was apparently playing in Sheffield five miles down the road!
