Mike Moran is the noted recording engineer who helped put the sound on tape for several hits as well as historic albums. While working for RCA, Mike engineered several sessions for Elvis Presley as well as for Perry Como, David Bowie and a long list of Broadway Cast albums including the original “Hair.” Mike was hired by RCA after his years in the service and in fact joined the company in the shipping department. He soon was told about educational classes the company offered and before long he had developed a real interest in sound recording and engineering. He worked as an assistant for several years before getting the opportunity to engineer on his own, which became his dream job.
