John and Helen Meyer’s 50-Year Journey: A Sonic Love Story
They had their first date in a Berkeley, Calif., hi-fi store in 1967, the Summer of Love, to listen to the newly released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Speakers for Steve Miller at Monterey Pop followed. Then the Dead, Metallica, Celine, Ed Sheeran and so many others. Now 50 years later, John and Helen Meyer, co-founders of Meyer Sound, are embarking on a yearlong, worldwide tribute to music, love and sound, visiting customers and celebrating a history of quality audio. Mix editor Tom Kenny interviews the Meyers from the Don Pearson Theater in the company’s Berkeley headquarters.
