Icebox Radio Theater

News, events and doings surrounding the Icebox Radio Theater of International Falls, Minnesota.

Sunday, August 03, 2008

Well, the great Sonic/Icebox summit of 2008 is complete, and I’m happy to report a great time was had by all. Jack Ward and family arrived yesterday afternoon and departed this morning early to cross the border back into Canada, and continue on to Thunder Bay.

We had a really good time, and Jack and I did grab a couple of hours just to talk audio and get to know each other a bit better. We have a spooky amount in common, same age, our fathers are both retired school principal’s, etc. I showed Jack around town, to the station where I work and the theater where the IBRT does its shows, we talked Pro Tools, script formats, what we’re listening too, and continued an on-going discussion about the need for an academy of some kind to keep a ratings system for audio theater, and maybe hold an expansive set of awards similar to the Oscars. Ahh, some day.

Other than that, there was just time to eat and watch one episode of Kolchak: The Night Stalker (Jack had never seen. Imagin!) and chill. They were back on the road at 8:30. The cycling odyssey continues for a couple more days.
