Heider’s San Francisco Alumni Meet

Some former WHR San Francisco clients and employees gathered for a MIX magazine photo shoot at Hyde Street Recorders at 245 Hyde Street Studio A. The studio, although improved with a vintage Neve console and a couple of iso booths, is otherwise intact after 37 years. This was the first time the four were there at the same time at this location since the 70’s.

Unless something else happens, the studio location is slated for demolition later this year, as the building has new owners and Hyde Street have lost their lease.

More info about the photo shoot and Hyde Street can be found in the October issue of Mix Magazine, and a tiny photo and abbreviated article at Mixonline.com

  1. This is truly amazing.
    There are so many great stories about life in the windowless world of 245 Hyde Street during the seventies.
    Wally was an extroardinary man. I learned many life-lessons in my years at Heider’s.
    Wally was a great boss who became a great friend. I only spoke to him twice after I left the company in 77/78, and both times he extended an offer of assistance, anything he could do for me, and dinner, Musso & Frank’s, next time I was in L.A.
    I wish I would have taken-him-up on that dinner.
    Steve M.

  2. And now it’s 2010, no wrecking ball in sight and over 41 years of continuous operation as a music recording studio in the same location.
