WKSU(FM)’s “Folk Alley” Web radio program is using Audio-Technica mics.
A-T said its microphones are used for announcements and voiceovers, live music broadcast and in-studio guests/performances in the station’s new mobile broadcast vehicle.
Mics include AE5400 Cardioid Condenser Handheld Microphones, AE5100 Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphones, PRO 35 Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Instrument Microphones and AT875R Line + Gradient Condenser Microphones.
Al Bartholet is executive director of WKSU and “Fold Alley.” Joe Gunderman, is the program’s production coordinator and senior producer. Linda Fahey is director of programming and marketing.
The station uses the mobile studio to capture folk and roots music performances at venues and festivals. The vehicle was paid for through a grant from a “Folk Alley” fan and helps promote the website and Kent State University.
