Miniology Radio LIVE From MiniThunder – A Special Edition

Listen in to this audio souvenir of our visit to MiniThunder IV, recorded live this past Saturday night at ThunderHill Speedway in Willows, Ca.

This show was an experiment in trying to do a live show from a remote location. We learned a lot about the technical side of audio production on the cheap. The mic levels were pretty low and the crowd was pretty loud, so the interviews are a challenge to hear clearly.

Have no fear, since recording this, we have acquired a nifty new audio mixer, so next time the production value will be much better.

So, enjoy this piece of audio as a remembrance of this great event. We will be back next year with a more kick ass show!
