In 2018 I started interning at KUTX, the NPR affiliate in Austin. As an audio intern, I help during live studio sessions as well as during pop up sessions for events such as SXSW and ACL. While I was mainly just an extra hand for the studio sessions, I would often be the sole person in charge of audio for the pop ups. I would use a Zoom H6, some SM 58s, and a lot of ingenuity to record solo acts and bands, in living rooms and under a tin roof during rain. It’s pretty nuts that they let me run around with these great musicians.
