Carver Management Meeting 2

In about 1986 Bob Carver wanted to go on vacation, but he was worried about decisions made in his absence. In our last management meeting before his departure we tried to calm his mind.  Or blow it.

    Just discovered this site. Pretty fun to read about some audio history in the great Northwest. Not only did I grow up with Jafco, Seattle Stereo, Speakerlab, Electricraft and, one close to my heart, the former Magnolia Hi Fi (I have finally gotten used to saying Magnolia Audio Video when I answer the phone!). This career of mine (33 yrs, 31 at Magnolia), has spanned many fine years in our industry. It is still a joy to help someone..whether upgrading speakers I sold them in the 80s or turning them on to their first real audio system. Love it!!

    How come they all look like Bob Carver ?

    I’d love to see the original picture !

    BTW, Robin Gudgel wrote up a little thing about the making of PNW inverter and alternative energy companies relating to Bob Carver and Phase Linear.

      Hi Bob, thanks for the link! I enjoyed the article and appreciate the data. I also enjoyed reading about you in “Exploding the Phone: The Untold Story of the Teenagers and Outlaws Who Hacked MA Bell” by Phil Lapsley. So fun to be reading a good book and discover one of your friends in it! Oh, the memories. I’d be happy to show you the originals – the 1980 Christmas card from AudioControl is next!
