This website project is dedicated to telling the stories of the engineers, recording studio facilities and the technologies behind the development of the popular music that we have come to love and to cherish since the end of the Second World War. The purpose of this educational website project is to connect the people who love popular music to the people, places, and also, the technologies that have been instrumental in creating it.

With this educational website project, I would like to take the time to honor the recording studio engineers who made a difference in my life and career and whose work and dedication have served to give us some of the greatest hit songs in the history of popular music. In this section, you can find articles that will discuss the life and career of each of the recording studio engineers who have been honored on the educational website project. Each engineer will have an article that will discuss each of the following topics: their life and career, the music that they have engineered and their impact and legacy. If I have had the opportunity to work with the engineer that is being honored, then there will also be a separate article which will discuss what it was like to work with them on a recording session.
