Welcome to the Working Your Way Up podcast series on ProSoundWeb, hosted by PSW/LSI senior editor Erik Matlock. For episode one of series one, we’re joined by veteran touring monitor engineer Mark Frink, the author of many articles here on PSW.

Mark has mixed monitors for numerous top artists including kd lang, Dr John, Tony Bennett and many more. Mark has a personal preference for the monitor position and quite a bit of advice for the aspiring audio engineer considering a career on monitor beach.

The purpose of the Working Your Way Up podcast is to seek out professionals to see what advice they might have for the next generation coming up behind them.

I’ll like offer a special thanks to ProSoundWeb, NAMM and Whisper Room for helping make series one of Working Your Way Up possible. Now let’s hear the interview with Mark Frink at Summer NAMM 2019 in Nashville…

Lots of wise advises.

love the secret of success and the reminder on when to run on stage to swap a mic ;-).

The importance to be more than just a sound Tech is good too.

However, I didn't understand the 2 by 4 wood for FOH or monitor speaker?

A great interview overall.
