FB: Greetings once again to the Berklee community and to music fans at large. This is Fred Bouchard, your host of the Berklee Oral History Project, as we commence our fourth season. We try to keep it fresh and lively and do something a little different every time. So this time we're starting with something quite unusual. It's only our second remote since Charlie Mariano, a couple of Junes ago. And we're interviewing our first non-musicians in this entire series. Two people, Ed and Ruth Williams had an enormous influence on the recorded documentation of Boston and Berklee musicians for a twenty year span. Since Ed is an engineer and I would like to dedicate this program to our late friend Wayne Waddams, who himself was a fine recording engineer among many other things in his life, and I'd just like to say that Ed and Ruth have, through their prodigious dedication, have come up with, over a twenty year span, an extraordinary library of high quality, studio quality recordings of hundreds and hundreds of Boston musicians. Most of these concerts and gigs were of the Jazz flavor, which is dear to our hearts, and they were recording all over southern and all of New England, between 1984 and 2004. Congratulations on your tremendous effort. Thanks for giving the recordings and some of the photographs to the Berklee library. And welcome to our series.
