Stevie’s Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevie_Wonder
musician, singer-songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist. A child prodigy, he has become one of the most creative and loved musical performers of the late 20th century.[2] Wonder signed with Motown’s Tamla label at the age of eleven[2] and continues to perform and record for Motown as of the early 2010s. He has been blind since shortly after birth.[3]
Among Wonder’s works are singles such as “Superstition”, “Sir Duke”, “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” and “I Just Called to Say I Love You”; and albums such as Talking Book, Innervisions and Songs in the Key of Life.[2] He has recorded more than thirty U.S. top ten hits and received twenty-two Grammy Awards, the most ever awarded to a male solo artist, and has sold over 100 million albums and singles, making him one of the top 60 best-selling music artists.[4] Wonder is also noted for his work as an activist for political causes, including his 1980 campaign to make Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday a holiday in the United States.[5] In 2009, Wonder was named a United Nations Messenger of Peace.[6] In 2008, Billboard magazine released a list of the Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists to celebrate the US singles chart’s fiftieth anniversary, with Wonder at number five…cont. — with Stevie Wonder at NAMM Anaheim Convention Center

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”:
http://www.gerrycagle.com/2012/04/17/pot-it-up/
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..

*Nice article by Alex Walsh in the Local Six News about Terry – Posted on Tue, Oct 13, 2009 by AFM6
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
