On Wednesday, February 17, 2010, the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus visited Yukon Public Schools in Oklahoma. This podcast features a seven minute interview with Ryan L’Esperance, an audio engineer who works and lives on the tour bus ten months of the year. According to the official website of the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus: The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus is a non-profit 501(c)(3) mobile audio and HD video recording and production facility. Since 1998, the Bus has provided free hands-on programs to hundreds of high schools, colleges, Boys and Girls Clubs, music festivals, concerts, conventions and community organizations. Working together with some of the biggest names in music, the Lennon Bus encourages students to play music, write songs, engineer recording sessions and produce video projects using the latest audio, video, and live sound equipment. The interior is divided into three separate studio environments that can be opened to create one large studio. The front studio is a cutting-edge audio and video production room. The rear studio offers pro-level recording and mixing at the highest possible resolution, as well as an iso booth for acoustic recordings, and a chromate (green screen) booth. Powered by Apple computers, the studios feature traditional musical instruments and the latest Sony HD products and solutions. Also on-board is a Mackie P.A. system enabling performances on the side of the Bus. [end of website quotation] What a fantastic, creative opportunity for students in Yukon Public Schools, Oklahoma!
