Take 3… Rolling!

A happy item in the New York Times today: Power Station Studios, where I was a staff engineer from 1978 to 1987, has been bought by Berklee College of music and will be re-opening after a long-overdue renovation.

Power Station, Studio A: my alma mater.

This is the second time this magnificent facility, which in my opinion is the best place on Earth to make a record, has cheated death. In 1996 the original Power Station, in deep financial trouble, was rescued from imminent condo-hood in by Chieko and Kirk Imamura, who renamed it Avatar [note: this link might not work for long].

Now it seems that Berklee will be sprucing the place up and putting it back in business again as Power Station. This is very good news.

… Also in today’s Times, this gem:

“Every day that you’re working as a model, you’re objectified somehow.”

Well, duh.

    This is good news. However, the only thing I do not understand is how Boston based Berklee can operate via NYC?
