Two UK innovators of mixing - The late Froggy & Les Adams circa
Les' daughter Rebecca
One for the anoraks! Les Adams circa 1980, pictured at the console in his
first home studio where shows were made for pirate stations Solar, Horizon, Radio Jackie, Radio Contact and his
early DMC mixes were produced.
Of particular interest is the GLi 3990 mixer. This was the first privately
owned 3990 in the UK and was the classic and ground breaking US mixer. It was the first DJ mixer to feature both a
sliding X-fader with rotary volume controls and split-cue monitoring and was the mixer on which Les learned his
craft. Note also the array of home-made buttons and switches that remote operated the turntables, NAB cart machines
and fired primitive samplers!
