What hasn’t Bob Heil done? He’s practically the Chuck Norris of audio … Over the weekend Bob was receiving an honorary Doctor of Music and Technology from the University of Missouri at St. Louis. Heil was saluted for his lengthy and innovative contributions to broadcast, live, studio and amateur radio audio technology. He spoke at the school commencement.
Manager of Information Technology at UMSL Marcel Bechtoldt said of Heil, “He continues to add to his many years of research in sound reinforcement and shares his wealth of knowledge in workshops, conference presentations, authored books, podcasts and at educational institutions worldwide. His passion for playing the theater organ and his interests in electronic technology gained in amateur radio at an early age were great foundations, allowing his creative juices to flow through the decades.”
