Inside Live Mix

Live Music Week is perhaps no more hectic than it is for Head Engineer Dave Labuguen  and the Live Mix team. “It’s hectic, bands in, bands out,” says Labuguen, or The Labuges as he is known around WERS, “You gotta make ‘em sound great within a short period of time, which is what we train for. The listeners support us and make this all possible with our state of the art equipment.” Live Mix engineers have at times less than a half hour to get one group out of the station and another one in, set up, soundcheck and broadcast a full set of music ranging from acoustic folk to twenty-piece a cappella groups sometimes in the same hour. But these guys and gals get a front row seat to some of the best music happening in the Boston area this week. Having performed a set myself this morning I can personally attest to the hard work these guys do. Engineer Rob Chen came ready to work bright and early and had me up and running in no time.

Give your support and keep our Live Mixers working!
