Editor's Note: The Importance of Crew

Jan 1, 2012, By Tom Kenny, Editorial Director

I also love the POPulation groups: Everything I need is always right in front of me, just where I want it to be. I work so that the console’s Area B on my right is always Dolly, with my left hand for the band’s channels. ...
