Today’s music studios are chock full of high-end audio equipment, and the rooms are specially engineered for the best acoustics. But for nearly 30 years, some of our most iconic recordings came out of a humble military surplus Quonset Hut set up on Nashville’s Music Row. Bob talks to musician Chuck Mead, who has just released an album of classic country songs that he recorded in the original Quonset Hut, which has been restored as a studio. Also joining us is music journalist and filmmaker Craig Havighurst, who produced a companion documentary about the Quonset Hut. Their new CD/DVD package is called Back at the Quonset Hut.
Then, we remember 60 Minutes legend Mike Wallace. In 2007, Bob talked to Wallace about his struggles with depression and the continuing stigma attached to mental illnesses. Mike Wallace died last weekend at the age of 93. [Broadcast Date: April 11, 2012]
