Hi John

“I got a clue that it was a bad idea to name my company Roberts after seeing an old Roberts tape recorder and thinking ew.”

Now see, a rose is a rose or some poetic spray fill injected here.  
I spent a lot of time dreaming about / wishing for a Roberts 770 when I was a teen and they were always out of reach.

I like the label haha.  I got a bottle of hot sauce from a friend that had a good label, “Ass in the tub” with a guy sitting in a tub of water.    
Very Hot stuff, tongue penetrating, fiery hot with just a slight trace of flavor.  
Funny too, the guy that gave it to me had some special hot sauce he said was “really really hot” where the tub stuff was pretty mild by his taste.
Best,
Tom

I know a Doctor with my last name.


I'd have to change my name if I went into that profession!

I wonder if it would have been any easier to reach if it has the name "Akai" on the outside. All the inside parts did.

I had an eye doctor named Dr. Doctor. He shared a practice with his wife Dr. Doctor.

Mac, say it aint so,  my 40 odd year old dreams are crumbling haha.  
In my Jr and Sr year of High school I worked at a TV store that sold Panasonic (before Technics). I was slowly able to pay the store and get a Panasonic reel to reel, an RS736 or something as I recall.
Best,
Tom

I only ever took apart one Roberts, but that one was all Akai inside. Sorry.

I do some low-voltage work for Kroger stores and one of them is managed by Mr. Mister.  His wife Mrs. Mister manages another Kroger store.

Speaking of funny names, I used to work at a music store where one of the owners was regularly receiving a page over the intercom that said "you have Manley Cox on line 2."

My grade 7 science teacher was named Mr. Brainey. No joke.

Wow,
If I could understoond they are joking around name and second name...

So, i would to say just one thing: my second name "Chiappini" in Italin language it seems like a "little ass". Ahahah that's true!
Finally, "chiappe" means vulgary bottom.  Very Happy

Anyway,
I look forward to seeing the QSC mix at the NAMM show...
