127th AES Convention Names McGlaughlin Keynote Speaker
Peabody Award-winning radio personality William “Bill” McGlaughlin (pictured) has been named Keynote Speaker for the 127th AES Convention. The longtime host and music director of American Public Media’s popular Saint Paul Sunday public radio program McGlaughlin is a highly regarded broadcaster, educator, composer and conductor.

In making the announcement, Convention Chair Agnieszka Roginska remarked, “While the focus of our conventions are largely technical in nature, we are delighted to provide our attendees with an opportunity to enjoy a discourse by a broadcaster celebrated for his performance behind the mic rather than behind the control room window.”

Entitled "Talent Doesn’t Push Buttons," McGlaughlin’s address will consider the relationship between the on-air talent and the audio engineers who insure the high-quality sound and technical support that contribute to a program’s long-term success.

In 2003 McGlaughlin began hosting Exploring Music, a WFMT daily radio program showcasing great works of classical music. Every week the show explores a single classical music theme in hour-long daily episodes. McGlaughlin’s unique brand of information-laced enthusiasm has drawn praise for instilling a sense of classical music appreciation within an audience that has grown to more than 500,000 listeners. Beyond his career as a broadcaster and music educator, he is an accomplished orchestral musician, classical composer and conductor.

In 2004, Exploring Music garnered McGlaughlin a Lifetime Achievement Award from Fine Arts Radio International. He has co-hosted the nationally syndicated radio series Center Stage from Wolf Trap since its inception in 1999, and since 2007 has hosted the nationally syndicated Concerts from the Library of Congress radio series. Among his many awards and honors are five ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming; the 1990 Deems Taylor Award (ASCAP) for Saint Paul Sunday; a 1990 honorary doctorate from Westminster College; and a 1995 Peabody Award for Saint Paul Sunday.

The 127th AES Convention will be held October 9-12 in New York City at the Javits Center. For more information, visit www.aes.org.
