  • HOLA! From Puerto Rico...

    Grammy Winner Mastering Engineer dealing with tape since 1978. Senior Contributor Writer for Mono & Stereo HI End Magazine where I manage the "Tape Talk" column. I believe I have the biggest tape decks collection in PR: cassette decks and open reel. I'm very fond of the Classic Hi Fi and have 2 Crown decks perfectly restored by the "Crowndoc" himself Chuck Ziska. Have many other decks as well. Happy to be here.

            Greetings and salutations. I always enjoyed my trips to Puerto Rico doing installation and programming work for PREPA. Every person I dealt with and met was wonderful. Great food too. One little restaurant in Bayamon had the best seafood. The owner was a character, he loved deep sea fishing and would close the restaurant to fish until he needed money to keep his boat in fuel. He was a genius in the kitchen, his mahi-mahi in plantain sauce was fabulous. Got to like a man with concrete priorities.
