Sad to report...

That 'Jeep' Harned, the man who brought us AE's MCI recording equipment, had died on the 12th of this month.
I have to go on record and say that I knew the man to be kind, smart, funny, and a lover of good music.

Rest in Peace, Jeep.

Here's a link to the Durango Colorado newspaper's obituary, in which it suggests charitable donations in his name can be made to the Humane Society out there.

With tax time looming, I often like to make my modest charitable donations in accordance with the wishes of departed people I've admired or known. Not that I knew him well, but I did meet him. Plus, back in the late 80's, the first studio I interned in was Downtown Recorders in Boston; MCI console and recorders were the first I ever learned, so I have a moderately nostalgic twinge about his contributions to the industry, and my little career.

Anyway, I'm sending a small check out to Colorado tomorrow.

My condolences to his family and friends.
