I met Bob Whyley a long time ago when Michael McDonald performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 1993. I was Michael’s FOH Mixer, so my job was to be in the control room and make suggestions to the Tonight Show mixer. I was not allowed to touch anything but to act more like a music producer. Bob and I hit it off from the start and I came back to the show several times with other artists in the same role. Sometimes I came down just to sit and watch him work.
It is amazing to see how much goes on behind the scenes at a show like this. Through Bob, I was hired to be the “Fill-In” PA Mixer when the regular mixer took vacations or called in sick. I had a great time doing that job.
Bob has had a very long and interesting career doing many different jobs in the industry even working as a radio personality. When you listen to this interview, you will be blown away at how Bob got his start and at such an young age.
Bob has always been very supportive of me and my career and we have remained friends fo all these many years since we first met. Glad to know Bob.
