Meet Steve Remote.....and his boy Elroy

For those who'd like an insight into Steve the man: his history, his recording approach and philosophy and a peek into his truck named Elroy.....an excellent way to meet him is via this hour+ long interview



It was really cool to see Elroy expand out to his maximum width in the opening minutes, and to hear of his early years building the business, his 6.5 trucks in 41 years, ideas on recording tech schools, "making detailed maps and sketches and leaving nothing to chance" ....and his take on the value of making (and learning from) your mistakes !

Start from 5:00 mins in.....have you still got that Revox A700 Steve ?

Edit....this is in the correct forum, as it's primarily about Steve and not Elroy per se

Thank you so much for posting this 'ROADIE FREE RADIO' video interview from May 28, 2018. Episode 100, baby!

FYI, I wish I still had that REVOX A700, and many other toys and instruments for that matter.

You placed this thread in the most perfect forum. Thank you for doing so!

Revisiting this video is quite refreshing to me; thanks again for posting this thread. Much appreciated!

No problem....it's great to finally see the man behind the shades, the myth and the Moderator !

I'm sure most of us here are interested in how fellow Remotesters made this their vocation, and it's great to compare early influences and approaches to the ever-evolving recording scene....so thanks for sharing your time via this interview
If I were in NYC I'd be raising my hand for an interning stint in Elroy too !

This coming May (2020) will make this interview two years old, yet it seems like it was only yesterday.

The folks that know me personally will see me (in this interview) like I am most of the time. The folks that don't know me personally get a chance to see (and hear) the "madness" of Remoteness.

Thanks again, for sharing this with this forum.

Thanks, Georgie!

It's been nearly four years since this that interview was post and two years since studer58 created this thread.

Originally, I felt I was "all over the place" in the interview. Seeing it again after all these of years, not so much, yet I wish I could have edited it a bit.
