How We Got Loud, Episode 5: Greg Carttar, 3rd St. R&D Production Services

The journey from making home stereo equipment to touring with icons such as Johnny Cash, Steve Martin and The Statler Brothers, with a lot of interesting stops (and stories) along the way.

In Episode 5, host Chris Leonard is joined by Greg Carttar, who started out making amplifiers and home stereo equipment and quickly found himself providing sound for concerts. He started 3rd St. R&D Production Services in 1974 and then went on to work with acts like Johnny Cash, Steve Martin, The Statler Brothers, and more, and talks about that as well as getting much of his early training and support from Stanal Sound.
