Gordon is the principal force behind Save The Stereo having spent three months developing the concept, strategy, and structure that define the project. In other words, he’s the guy that banged his head against a keyboard until this all came together. It wasn’t a pretty or linear process, but he enjoyed it thoroughly.
Any chance Gordon gets, he’s in his basement listening to LPs and digital files through tubes, tubes, and more tubes. Everything from Rimsky-Korsakoff to Vivaldi, Miles Davis to Herbie Hancock, Ella Fitzgerald to Sinatra, the Beatles to the Stones, Beck to Byrne, Bob Marley to the Clash, and Kraftwerk to Daft Punk, Gordon can’t get enough. Seriously, he’s completely addicted to music. As they say, if there’s a cure, he doesn’t want it.
Gordon’s day job is Publisher of Truck Camper Magazine.
Angela White is the web developer and social media expert for the Save The Stereo Project. Angela also brings her considerable skills of organization and management to the project, abilities that take Save The Stereo from a creative vision, to an actionable reality.
While Angela builds scrapbooks and other creative memory projects in her scrap room, she loves rocking out to (in no particular order) Madonna, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Jack Johnson, Paul Simon, Annie Lennox, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Stevie Wonder, Erasure, Keb Mo, Queen, Ben Rector, Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, and Sting.
Ensconced in her scrap world, Angela even gets away with the occasional country music song, something her husband has – with few exceptions – a distinct allergy to.
In full disclosure, Angela’s scrap room music is supplied by a RFS product. Gordon has sworn to get her a real two-speaker stereo for her scrap room, but has yet to make good on this promise. As you might imagine, this remains a point of contention in the White house.
There’s one more essential quality that Angela brings to the Save The Stereo Project, she is not an audiophile. While Angela appreciates the qualities of Gordon’s two-speaker high-fidelity stereo system (especially with Jack Johnson’s In Between Dreams on LP), she maintains the perspective of a non-audiophile music lover and is the first to question the cost, value, aesthetics, room space requirements, weight, and size of a stereo system. In other words, she’s absolutely perfect for the Save The Stereo Project.
Angela’s day job is the Editor of Truck Camper Magazine.
Rob brings a critical facet to the Save The Stereo project. As an electrical engineer with decades of experience repairing and upgrading tube and solid state stereo equipment, Rob understands the technology behind the magic. As an engineer, Rob finds it fascinating to reconcile what he is hearing in a component versus how the design “should” sound.
Rob became addicted to music and stereo gear the day he helped his dad repair a tube based GE “suitcase” stereo. His dad gave him the stereo and, later that year, Rob received his first album, “K.C. and the Sunshine Band” for Christmas. He was eight and over the years his tastes in music and equipment have improved… a little. When he is not rocking out to K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Rob listens to everything from Rock to Classical and he especially loves Jazz and the Blues. Rob is always on the hunt for new and interesting music.
Rob founded the Lancaster Audio Club with the goal of bringing together other stereo enthusiasts to listen to and discuss music and equipment. He enjoys introducing young people to the hobby and has “saved” many of them from bad sound.
When Rob is not actively listening to music he is restoring a classic piece of audio gear in his shop or spending time with his family. Rob is married and has a beautiful eight year old daughter to whom he is TRYING to pass on the torch. He restored a Party Time phonograph (complete with psychedelic lights) for her and give her a stack of records to play on it. For now, she is content listening to Katy Perry.
