South Windsor, CT, February, 2010 – International superstar Michael Buble surprised listeners of Hartford, CT’s 96.5 fm WTIC radio when he broadcast a secret show from the studios of microphone manufacturer TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik. WTIC and TELEFUNKEN co-sponsored the intimate performance, which featured stand-up bass, drums, acoustic guitar and Buble, using new microphones from the company known for mics designed in the tradition of the classic mics of the past.
The Buble show is one in a series of shows recently produced by the TELEFUNKEN staff in the company’s 8000 sq.ft. manufacturing center, which includes a 2500 sq.ft. soundstage that also serves as a multi-use recording studio and production lab for its extensive microphone line.
“We want the global music community to know that our lab is not only capable of designing and manufacturing top quality vacuum tube microphones,” said Alan Veniskofsky, Director of Operations, “We’ve now expanded our facility to include a soundstage/recording studio environment capable of hosting performances and sessions with World Class recording artists.”
Canadian-born Michael Buble has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and has won numerous awards, including two Grammys and multiple Canadian Juno Awards. His debut album was a Top Ten hit in numerous countries, followed in 2005 by the success of “It’s Time” and in 2007 with “Call Me Irresponsible,” which was #1 in Canada, as well as a top hit in the Billboard and European charts.
