Eddie Garcia

Audio Engineer/Producer, Triad Arts

Eddie Garcia began his career as an audio engineer at the age of 13 when he figured out how to record fuzz guitar into his family’s Hi-Fi VCR.   Many trips to Radio Shack later, he purchased a Tascam 424 MKII 4-track and hasn’t stopped pressing record since.  After years of playing in bands, recording bands, and setting up rickety PA systems, he studied recording engineering at GTCC.  During this time he was also a DJ at 90.9 WQFS, Guilford College’s student run radio station.  In the spring of 2007 he began an internship with WFDD where he earned the nickname “The Productionator.”  With a ravenous appetite for information and a love of new sounds and ideas, public radio was a great fit.

Since officially joining WFDD in the fall of 2007, Eddie has recorded or edited audio heard on Triad Arts, Story Corps, Marketplace, Voices & Viewpoints, WFDD News, and many other programs.  He currently serves as the Technical Producer of Triad Arts Weekend, where he assembles the one hour show, records the Live in Studio A sessions, and produces Kairoff at the Keyboard.  Eddie’s voice can occasionally be heard on the WFDD airwaves as well – can you spot him?

Independently Eddie has engineered the award-winning Maya Angelou’s Black History Month Special since 2011.  He has also run live sound at The Garage in downtown Winston Salem, engineered events at SECCA, and hosted karaoke (seriously) at Krankies & The Garage.  He has way too many interests to list here but Eddie’s pretty obsessed with guitar pedals & cinema.  He is a BMI-affiliated songwriter, and if you’re lucky you can catch him thrashing around the stage playing guitar like a madman & singing with his band Jews and Catholics.

Triad Arts Weekend: July 26, 2013

On the first half of today's show, our Associate Producer Bethany Chafin talks it up with author Ken Ilgunas about his new book Walden on Wheels: On the Open Road from Debt to Freedom. Then we head to the open road on two wheels and a sneak peak at The Bicycle: Art Meets Form. It’s the perfect blending of world-renowned custom frame builders, bike derived art, and it’s the first time ever that a USA Cycling National Championship has ever come to North Carolina. Peter Kairoff is back at the keyboard with dynamics in classical music, and organist Ray Ebert is here to share the Sounds of the Summer. Scroll down to hear individual segments.
