Ham Radio in Guitar World Cover Story

Rock superstar Joe Walsh, who is also WB6ACU, is featured on the cover of the May issue of Guitar World magazine. In the accompanying interview (timed to mesh with the June 5 release of his newest solo album, "Analog Man"), Walsh makes several references to amateur radio, including a discussion of how the technical knowledge he gained as a ham has helped him work with guitars and their sound. He also discusses introducing the prototype Talk Box to Bob Heil, K9EID, who went on to manufacture and market them to rock musicians.
