Longtime music business professional Gary Gottlieb refers to himself as a music generalist. A professional musician since age 13, he worked in radio on and off for 25 years, and was a music critic for 9 years. As a recording engineer and music producer in New York, Gottlieb's long and distinguished career includes work with numerous Grammy Award winners and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees. His credits as a sound designer include off-off-Broadway productions, along with community and college theatre productions throughout New England. Along with his history as a music critic and entertainment writer for the Deerfield Valley News in West Dover, Vermont, and a disc jockey for WEQX, a major modern rock station in Manchester, Vermont, Gottlieb owned and operated a mobile DJ service and was a Venue Director for numerous X Games and Winter X Games for ESPN. In 2002 he accepted a position as Professor of Audio Production at Webster University in St. Louis, where he now runs the Audio program.

Paul Hennerich is the owner and chief engineer of PanGalactic Recordings, whose clients include the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra. Hennerich has been the recording engineer for the symphony for more than 10 years. For five years, he was recording engineer and audio producer for a syndicated National Public Radio show of the symphony's live performances. In addition, his work as recording engineer and editor for the symphony CD Messiaen: Turangalila-symphonie helped earn the CD a mention as a "Record to Die For" by Stereophile and a Netherlands' Edison ClassicalMusic award in the Special Historical Editions category in 2008. Hennerich is a contributing location producer and recording engineer for another syndicated NPR show, JazzSet, producing recordings of concerts by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and others. In addition to his experience working with live recordings for national programs, Hennerich also has been technical director and audio producer for live broadcasts for KMOX and KFUO. Hennerich, a full adjunct professor of audio for Webster University, is also a partner in AAM Recordings, a small independent record label specializing in location recording. His experience also includes location recording and work as a mastering engineer for music from indie heavy metal to blues and location recording for web streaming of a concert series produced by the symphony and the Pulitzer Arts Foundation. He started his career as a front-of-house engineer for venues, including the 12,000-seat Muny (St. Louis Municipal Opera) and the more than 10,000-person crowd at the St. Louis Blues Festival.
