Circa 1977, the beginnings of Theta Sound Studio, Randy Tobin at the controls surrounded by various off-the-shelf and hand-built studio hardware.

39 years ago I started Theta Sound Studio. The original location was in the living room of my apartment in Downey, California (see photo). From humble beginnings I moved to an apartment in Hollywood, then to a rental house in Los Feliz, before being “earthquaked” into our current location in Burbank for the past 28 years.

I’ve had the pleasure to co-create with so many amazing artists over the years: singers, musicians, songwriters, composers, voice actors, authors, producers, dancers, choreographers, ice skaters, comedians and so on.

And I’ve grown as well, both as an artist and as a skilled professional in the creative arts of audio recording/mixing/mastering, video recording/editing/directing, graphic design/typesetting and website design. I love what I do!

With the addition of the above, in 1984 I started Theta Data Type & Design which, along with our recording studio, became part of Theta Media Group, Inc. in 2000. Theta Media Group encompasses all the creative endeavors necessary to bringing your vision to the world, be they words, music, video, photo, animation, interactive, static, printed or on line.

Theta Media Group is officially launching its new Digital Marketing/Website Development service this month. And NEEDS & WANTS newspaper (originally typeset/designed by Theta Data and now entirely designed and published by Theta Media Group) celebrates its 30th year of continuous monthly publication!

To celebrate these awesome milestones, Cyndie and I are hosting our Annual BBQ & Fest on Saturday, September 24th, from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. and you are invited! It’s a pot-luck affair but we’ve made it easy for you with the following…

What to bring: Something for you and your party that’s easy to barbeque like boneless, skinless chicken, boneless steak, burgers, sausages, grill-cut veggies, etc.

G-L Side Dish/Salad
M-R Drinks

We’ll have Chef Tobin’s famous BBQ sauces on hand and a simmerin’ pot of Randy’s Secret Recipe Baked Beans.
