I was walking by the TV and saw a microphone clip that was not secured to the stand.  It flopped inverted while the singer was sound checking.  They cut to the Peavey guy who said we need to work on the quality of our gear.  This could be a train wreck PR wise so I did hit the DVR.  I am going to watch it later tonight.

A few years ago I saw this exact same thing happen to Paul Shaffer in the middle of a show, while talking to David.  He tried to hide his emotion, but he got a pissed-off expression on his face (I know that look!) and fixed the mic.  I suspect that a policy was put in place after that (LocTite, maybe?).  It's not like I haven't seen a mic flop over like that before, just not on a high-profile show like The Late Show.

I watched the show and the microphone slip was far from biggest faux pas, IMO.

Clearly not a scripted show....

PS I used to have an office in plant 3 back in the '80s. The closest thing to rush hour in Meridian used to be when Plant 3 let out. But that was years ago.

Read the transcript of the show. Not good for Peavey.

No it painted Harley and the COO as headless and clueless.  After giving some money to a couple of employees as charity they ended up closing the plant and those folks were changed to shift work.  HR did the layoff Harley and the COO didn't show.  They showed the speaker assembly line.  Air nailing MI grade pressboard cabinets together was also a less than flattering scene.  I was shocked at how bad Peavey was presented.

Agreed. PR nightmare, and Hartley should be ashamed.
