    A new Tape Op Podcast is here!

    feat-episode-25-ryan-hewitt-eml.jpgEpisode 25: Ryan Hewitt

    We interviewed Ryan Hewitt back in 2007 for Tape Op Issue 61. A lot can happen in ten plus years, so we thought it’d be a good idea to check in. Online Publisher Geoff Stanfield caught up with Ryan to talk about his mobile recording pioneer dad David Hewitt, Rick Rubin, Phil Ramone, his recent move to Nashville and to just generally chew the fat. Enjoy!

    People's Vote
    I WANT TO ATTEND THE MARCH

    The UK would be walking to the end of gang plank, blindfolded only to turn around at the end and try to talk tough; it is the weakest negotiating position in history. But the truth is that just a calculated effort to deceive voters about the devastating impact on jobs, our vital public services and young people of a disastrous botched Brexit.

    They talk about democracy but want to pull the wool over people’s eyes and deny you the chance to have your voice heard.

    We’re not going to let them get away with it.

    I’LL ATTEND THE MARCH TO MAKE THIS THE BIGGEST BREXIT MARCH EVER
