Zakk Wylde Concert - Ozzie Osbornes guitarist plays for WAAF at a Listener's workplace!

Contests are getting cooler than ever! WAAF in Boston has lately been promoting concerts in a lucky listener's "lunch room". It was through such a promotion that Zakk Wylde, guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, ended up playing in a most unusual venue, Brideau's Machine Shop in Leominster. WAAF jock, Mistress Carrie who was originally from Leominster, is seen here interviewing Zakk.

These concerts must be delivered on very short notice, since the event is likely to happen very shortly after the end of the contest. And obviously prior to the end of the contest, the venue is unknown! So at Brideau's Machine Shop, DSL was available, but little else to deliver the remote. This could prevent a challenge to the engineering staff. But not for WAAF engineer Eric Fitch and the team from Minuteman Communications. For this remote, the Comrex ACCESS on IP was the obvious choice.

The remote went off without a hitch and sounded great! Stereo high fidelity sound was easily delivered, thanks to the ACCESS.
