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: October 4, 2013

Today we’re going to linger in the dark for a while before we burst into the sunshine with a singer songwriting living legend who calls the Piedmont Triad home. First, we’ll put on our ballet shoes, perfectly weighted capes, and composer’s cap for an introspective look at the life of a guy named…Dracula. Winston-Salem Festival Ballet’s Gary Taylor and UNCSA composer Chris Heckman are here to tell this gripping love story through the eyes and ears of the Count. Then, we keep the lights down low for our exploration of Chopin Nocturnes. Acclaimed pianist and music historian Pamela Howland is here to share the sumptuous sounds of her Polish hero. Pam’s performances have been given a hearty “thumbs up” (literally) by none other than Sir Paul McCartney—we’ve got the photographic proof. We go “Behind the Scenes” with Wake Forest University Co-Director of the Documentary Film Program Mary Dalton. She’s got director Jane Campion in her sites and you’ll find out why on Triad Arts Weekend.

Triad Arts Weekend: September 20, 2013

When it comes to music, the late great Duke Ellington may have said it best: “There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind”. Today on Triad Arts Weekend, you don’t have to worry about the latter because we’ve got blues, to ballads, Bach and beyond! It’s all part of 17 Days Festival with music, art, theatre and more coming to Greensboro September 20th through October 6th. 17 Days Festival is happening courtesy of Arts Greensboro and this year they’re bringing in more than 130 arts events including a concert by multi-platinum selling recording artist Joan Osborne. Joane Osborne is here today on TAW, as is singer/songwriter extraordinaire Aoife O’Donovan. Fresh of the road with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Aoife’s new CD Fossils was picked as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s "must-hear albums of the summer". And speaking of cellists, how about world renowned, multiple Grammy winner Matt Haimovitz? He’s got an amazing cello tribute to Jimmy Hendrix.
