Sound on Songwriters’ Circle

Every once in a while the show Songwriters’ Circle shows on on CBC Television as part of the early evening Atlantic Focus program.

Hosted by Cape Breton singer-songwriter Bruce Guthro, each episode features Guthro and two singer-songwriter guests singing their own songs and telling the stories behind them.

While the guests and their songs and stories are great — Randy Bachman was amazing — the standout feature of the show is the quality of the sound.

I don’t know why or how, but through some combination of acoustics, technology and mixing finesse Songwriters’ Circle has purer more vibrant audio than any show I’ve ever seen on television. If anyone knows those behind the show, please pass along my regards for their sonic excellence.

I ran into a local musician friend who’d seen last night’s episode of Songwriters’ Circle and noticed the good sound too — he mentioned that it looked like they were using very good high-end microphones.

I know you are talking about the sound, but if you enjoyed listening to Randy Bachman’s stories, which I did and do, I would recommend his show on CBC. Vinyl Tap — see the link — http://www.cbc.ca/programguide…

His stories and knowledge of music are simply amazing.
