Steve McCale

Last week, Karl spoke with Frank Farrell, who mixes monitors for Elvis Costello, and was on the show this past week at New Orleans' Mahalia Jackson Theater. This week, the series features an interview with Steve McCale, the front-of-house engineer for Tim McGraw. Steve discusses his entry into the profession, his thoughts on mixing differences, and some suggestions for aspiring audio engineers.

Frank Farrell

Today on the Work of Art, WWNO's Karl Lengel chats with audio engineer Frank Farrell. A concert has the front-of-house engineer who mixes for the audience and the monitor engineer who mixes for the artist. Frank Farrell has an expansive career doing just that - among others, for Kenny Rogers, Steve Miller and, currently, Elvis Costello. Like many audio engineers, he got started as a musician in his teens.
