My friend Phil Lerza (in KFRC T-Shirt) Chief Engineer CBS Radio – R.I.P. Phil! – here at Radio Day by The Bay at KRE / California Historical Radio Society – Jon Hammond
*Excellent remembrance of Phil written by Gerry Cagle on his Blog “Commentaries, Musings and More”:
Pot It Up!
Radio lost a great talent this week. I lost a friend.
In an industry where engineers are nameless, faceless souls who, for the most part, never “got it,” Phil Lerza was a superstar. Programmers who couldn’t tell you who their own engineer was knew all about Phil. Lerza was the superstar who perfected the KFRC sound. And what a sound. Envied by programmers across the country, many tried, but none succeeded in duplicating the sound of the Big 610. In short, Phil Lerza “Got it.”
Unless you worked at KFRC, you have no idea how perfect the radio station was. The industry measured how many hours stations were off the air during any given year. KFRC measure that time in seconds. Quite simply, KFRC was never off the air. Duplicate control rooms, backup music carts, generators, compressors and all sorts of whistles and bells were just a part of the process. In the cocoon of the control room, you were wrapped in perfection. It just didn’t get any better…*cont..

Donald’s Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Bailey_(musician)
Donald “Duck” Bailey is an American jazz drummer.
He is probably best known as the drummer in the trio of jazz organist Jimmy Smith from 1956 to 1964 and also for his work with The Three Sounds on Blue Note Records. Bailey also worked as a sideman for some of the most famous musicians in jazz including Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Hampton Hawes, Sonny Rollins, and Red Mitchell. He also played with John Coltrane in their early Philadelphia years. Bailey is also known as “The King of Organ Trio Drummers”. In 1978, Bailey released a harmonica album called “So In Love” (Trio Records) in Japan which received rave reviews. His latest project “Blueprints of Jazz Vol.3 featuring Donald Bailey” was issued on the Talking House record label in 2009. Bailey continues to perform around the San Francisco Bay Area in the United States

The Legacy Series: TERRY HILLIARD, Bass
“I Just Want To Play.”
by Alex Walsh
Terry Hilliard says he just wants to play his bass. He doesn’t want to be a bandleader; he doesn’t want to put together projects; he just wants to play.
Terry was born in Aurora, Illinois in 1936. A lifelong musician, and a life member of Local 6, Terry made his name in the 1960s with his influential performances on the Cal Tjader “Soul Sauce” and “Soul Bird” albums.
Growing up, there was always music in his house. His mother was a piano teacher, and his father loved jazz. When Terry was two years old, his father, who worked for the Sante Fe Railroad, was transferred to the West Coast. The family settled in Berkeley
Nice job on the live sound mix Carl! Sounded really great in the house – Jon Hammond
