Oops!

Had to move quickly at lunchtime today to correct a false impression I'd given my wife...

When she came in I said, "Gordon's put his foot in it by calling someone a bigot when he didn't realise his radio mic was on."

I had swiftly to dispel the impression that it was Mr Giltrap who had committed the faux-pas - I wondered why she was so surprised! :oops: :lol:

It would appear that the other Gordon needs a good “sound man”?????

I think the other Gordon had a sound man that was rather TOO good!

Second rule of broadcasting... all mics are 'live' mics. :lol:

... never be caught with your tuntables empty... (well, I did start broadcasting in the '70s! :) )

That's stood me in good stead on many an occasion when I've opened a fader to be met with an unnerving silence. :oops:

.... and I'll leave Gordon to tell you what is the 'Sin Against The Holy Ghost' of live-sound engineers!!!
