New Zealand Reader Taken Care Of
March 15, 2009
Recently we learned that subscriber Matthew Clayton, on staff at the School of Music at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, had trouble holding on to his copy of Recording. While it pleases us to know that our magazine is popular enough to get swiped on arrival by others in the department, we commiserated with Matthew and promised to remedy the situation.†
When we arrived to hand-deliver additional copies, we found that Matthew had gone on paternal leave, due to young Eartha, the latest addition to the Clayton family. Congratulations and best wishes!
As evident in the picture below, we handed Recording copies to Matthew's colleague Stephen Compton (center), and to Mike Layton (right) who came out of retirement to fill in for Matthew.
Stephen not only lectures and does tech and general audio work, but he is a specialist in theater audio, his first love. Mike is a veteran in many aspects of music and audio, from playing bass to broadcast work to recording pipe organs, to name but a few of his activities.
Keep up the good work, chaps, and no more fighting over Recording magazine!
