The 3LA Podcast, Episode 10: XLR

The Plazes screencasts I’m recording the audio for demanded a better quality microphone than the $15 mic from Radio Shack I bought last summer. So I went out to Sobers Music this morning and invested in an APEX435 microphone, a tiny Behringer mixing board and assorted cables.

The result is much better audio. At least once I figured out which way to point the microphone.

I celebrated the occasion by recording the XLR episode of The 3LA Podcast, wherein I explore the origins of the “XLR connector” that’s at the end of my new mic.

The guys at Sobers, by the way, were super-helpful. They knew exactly what I needed, and I was in and out in 20 minutes.

Hello Mr. Rukavina —

We are writing a book on the equestrian
history of Oakland, California and looking
for info on Margaret Rukavina and Pat
Rukavina. Both were rodeo riders in
this area circa 1945 — 1955. Any info?
Margaret was the captain of the Lari-ettes
drill team and quite a dish in her day.
