My real name is Richard Smith. I am an electrical contractor from Austin, TX...ya'll. Audio electronic restoration is my hobby. Nothing pleases me more than fixing cool old gadgets. I'm not into building kits, although as a youngster I did build a Heathkit amp and a PAIA synth. I am a tech school drop out from the early 80's. Did the music thang for many years before starting a family and my own business. I have no clue how I ended up here.
