Scott Wilkinson on Home Theater

Episode 1390 (18:42)

Scott Wilkinson

This week is the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and on Home Theater Geeks, Scott had as his guest one of the original sound recorders/designers for the film, Mike Minkler. He talks about the first use of front to back panning in sound and how George Lucas was very particular on how the film would sound in theaters.

This is also the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album by the Beatles and there's a new CD set out that not only has the album remixed, but also some rarely heard behind the scenes recordings of alternative takes and recording chatter.
