In this episode, you’ll hear

  • One of Wayne’s first gigs in Nashville was as a monitor guy at 12th & Porter for a band called Four Wheel Drive, who’s frontman was Keith Urban.  He was paid $50 for the night
  • Wayne had to mix a 42 piece orchestra with 11 mics for Ray Charles because Ray hated one mic per instrument, so he had to mix sections of the orchestra.
