I don't think I will apply - Too Much hassle at my age , though I COULD quote a Good recommendation . Trying to get a satisfactory sound mix for an elderly Irish Melodeon player with severe tinnitus I apologised and said "I'm not REALLY a 'sound man' , to which he replied "I'm sure you're a very sound man"

Terry, I wouldn't mind one of those!

It isn't often that university jobs would mesh with Mudcat interests, but I figure with the number of skills some of our members have, if the music isn't paying the bills, a day job might help.
