A day in the life…

 Of Louise Harrison, older sister of the late George Harrison.I had the pleasure of interviewing Louise this past Labor Day at her studio on Branson, Mo., where she tours with the Beatles cover band “The Liverpool Legends.”

The spot is set to air on ITV British television in the near future. What an interesting and full life this 86 year old has lived. It was a pleasure meeting and interviewing her.

Analog To Digital: Save Those Memories.

Dear Broadcasters:

Have a collection/archive of aging reel to reels, carts, cassettes, or records that you want to preserve in the digital age?

I have the resources and the time to help you convert those analog gems into any digital audio format you wish (aiff, mp3, mp4, wav, etc). I have a vintage Crown 800 reel to reel which can play 7-1/2 and 3-3/4 reels beautifully, plus TEAC and Techniques cassette machines and CD burner.

I can put the files on CD, DVD, or an external or thumb drive.

My rates are reasonable–$20.00/reel in most cases, and yes, I have splicing equipment in case a repair is in order. As a former broadcaster, I know the value of precious memories, award winning material, or just the bloopers that made the job with doing every day.

Visit my website jimdoblin.com and we’ll hash out the details.

Video tape conversion also available.
