You’re the best!

These guys are the real deal. The podcast is extremely entertaining, engaging and hugely informative. I would say Johnny and Stewie are the car talk of the audio recording podcast world. It’s that Italian American directness, humor and not taking yourself too seriously.

Ive been involved in audio recording since I was a teenager, a hobbyist and a professional and I put it down for a few years. Listening to this podcast completely reignited my love for the medium.

Thank you so much Johnny and Stewie for sharing your amazing industry stories and having such interesting guest on your show.

Looking forward to more podcasts!

The University of the Golden age of Greats

I'm a late bloomer as an engineer, producer. Born in '66' of Italian imigrant father and Brooklyn born Italian 1st gen mother, my 1st love was and has always been music, but I did a thousand other things instead. As a player and a visual artist, I watched film and vinyl in disbelief as it vanished. When after 2 kids and 52 years I finally made the jump to digital recording, (because that's all I could barely afford) determined to make some great music,I longed for the history and knowledge of the great days of the tape based studios. But I knew squat about recording. I wanted to be that intern, that runner, that schmuck starting at ground level, but at 52 I knew that ship had passed and I was ship out of luck, but Gear Club, Johnny and Stewy, came along with the University of, not only recording, but the great stories and human aspect behind the industry. Since finding Gear Club I listen in the car, on my headphones, everywhere. I repeat listen! I can't get enough of the entire spectrum, from analogue to digital. I feel at last there is a happy medium between thge 2 worlds. Gear Club is the next best thing to being in the room watching these guys and their guests, play, record, mix, master, promote, and distribute. Then you have creation guys, who defined, invented, innovated the gear we hear and love! Amazing. Thank you guys and keep on keeping on, I'm learning so much.Man I would love to see you and your guests in action, but short of that, its the perfect stuff at the right time! Thanks forever!

A Big Chunk of Music-making History

I'm struck by how much music-making history is in these podcasts, told through stories in and out of the studio by the best studio engineers of an entire generation. Also of note is the clear tracking of the analog to digital shift in studio engineering and in how studios were run "then and now." I'm also struck by the critical, but overall positive ways in which these great engineers morphed and adjusted to major cultural shifts as music went "copyleftist." Strongly recommended for music history buffs!
