Another station with a great looking custom board!
Must have been like playing a piano when operating, all those input buttons to choose from with just six pots!

Right you are Mike....a homemade board. Once you got the hang of it though you could really fly on that puppy! Later on in the 80's they went with a store bought Ward beck board with slider pots. It was a blast working on both for sure.

I have to hand it to Stan Davis.

I was lucky to work on his equipment for years.

I would kill to have one in my home studio.....just for fun.

Running a board is something I LOVED.

It was like a live Chess game. Get it all in and hit the news at exactly the appointed time. Ahhhh, back timing.

Have a great weekend.

Great photos.
And I believe the ratings back then were as big as those tie knots!
