Engineerobit: Mike Robinson

Andy Kershaw has mentioned on Facebook that Mike Robinson, who engineered shedloads of Peel Sessions down the years, has died.

Helen McCookerybook tells a great story in Ken Garner's In Session Tonight book where, tired of producing sessions on ageing equipment, Robinson deliberately made the sound louder and louder until the speakers blew. Blown speakers, it appeared, was a reason the BBC would allow the money for a replacement. They wouldn't spring for new ones if they were just knackered.
