It's a new year, and the Telos Alliance has added two new members to its growing family. We welcome Brett Patram, new Support Engineer, and Dave Collins, US Sales Manager for Omnia Audio. Brett has been working actively in the Cleveland radio market as an engineer for the past eight years. He was the Director of Engineering for Salem Media Group Cleveland for the past six years before joining the Telos Alliance. He is also the current Vice Chair for the local Society of Broadcast Engineers chapter 70.

Dave is originally from Philadelphia, and has been in radio, working as a program director, on-air host, and technical guy, for the last 15 years. Most recently, he worked at a station group in Lebanon, New Hampshire, did the ski and snowboard reports for a network of stations, and was the voice of Dartmouth Sports Network. Dave has engineered thousands of remote broadcasts, including live play-by-play sports, debates, interviews, and live music concerts.

Visit to Amsterdam and IBC Leads to Search for Best Beer in the World

By Milos Nemcik on Sep 7, 2016 1:00:00 PM

At dinner one night during a previous IBC, a discussion of the “Best Beer in the World” took hold of our table. Of course the beer in question came from a Belgian monastery, according to the internet (100 score on BA). One of the dinner participants was determined to try this beer while still in Europe. With a smart phone search we learned that the beer could indeed be found in Amsterdam. A small contingency at the table decided to break the mold of our traditional IBC routine of show floor hours, dinner, and sleep by venturing out into the greater Amsterdam area in search of this beer. We separated from our dinner party after the bill was paid and pleasantries were exchanged, and walked through the streets of old town in search for the store (the name of which is long forgotten). It was dark, it was late, and needless to say we never made it. The beer store was closed.
