The Boys in Control One

The Boys in Control One

One of the best things about going to the studio every night is getting to answer the phone “Control One, Open Source.” It just feels pro. Like we actually know what all the buttons and sliders do. Control One refers to the particular control room we use at WGBH. Chris works his magic in an adjacent studio, where we can see him through a soundproof window and, from a strange angle, on a closed-circuit monitor. These photos are from the nerve center last week:
