More than 100 people attended the inaugural event of the recently created Webster University Student Section of the Audio Engineering Society in St. Louis on November 6, 2003.

“The students did an incredible job pulling all this together,” said faculty advisor Gary Gottlieb. “They booked the space, promoted the event, arranged for refreshments, dealt with all the logistics and, most importantly, booked Bill Porter as the speaker. They even thought to honor Bill with a plaque to commemorate the event, as well as his longstanding service to the university and the music business. I couldn’t be prouder.”

Entitled "Bill Porter Live: An Evening With a Legend," the event was held in the conference room of the brand-new Emerson Library at Webster University where Porter reminisced about the music business during the ’50s and ’60s for two hours.

In addition to being a member of Webster’s adjunct faculty for the audio production program, Porter has engineered and produced some of the most prominent artists in the music industry, including Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers, Barbara Streisand, Diana Ross and Sammy Davis Jr. More than 7,000 career sessions have resulted in almost 600 charting records. He was the first engineer inducted into the Audio Hall of Fame, and his work at RCA’s Studio B in Nashville earned him accolades as the man who created the Nashville Sound. He also started the first four-year audio program at the University of Miami in 1975.
