Geeks and Beats podcast, episode 231: Mark Howard

Recording engineer, mixer, and producer Mark Howard drops by the G&B studios to talk about how U2 starts off sounding like a garage band and ends up selling Platinum records. Plus, life in the studio with Gord Downie, Bob Dylan, and why Tom Waits doesn’t like his drums “beige.” Plus, how to make music in a Mexican Porno Theatre. No, really.
