Host Bob Edwards talks with Jim Cogan and William "Bob" Clark, co-authors of the book, Temples of Sound: Inside the Great Recording Studios. The book surveys 15 of America's most legendary recording studios, from Capitol Studios to Nashville's RCA B: Home of a Thousand Hits. The temple of sound is Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York, a former Greek orthodox church, where Billie Holliday and Miles Davis and Gil Evans recorded.
