We will be meeting in person at 7:00 PM August 26th, in the Goldfarb School of Nursing at Missouri Baptist Hospital. The program will be presented by Bob Heil (K9EID).

Bob is a sound and radio engineer most well-known for creating the template for modern rock sound systems. He founded the company HEIL SOUND in 1966, which went on to create unique touring sound systems for bands such as The Grateful Dead, The Who and developed the Talk Box for Peter Frampton.

Bob has been an innovator in the field of amateur radio, manufacturing microphones and satellite dishes for broadcasters and live sound engineers. He has won multiple awards and honors, and in 2007 he became the first manufacturer to be invited to exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Bob is well known in theatre organ circles, beginning his career at the age of 15 playing the FOX Theatre Wurlitzer in St. Louis.  In 2014, Bob Heil was awarded an honorary doctoral degree in Music and Technology from the University of Missouri. In February of 2022 ownership of Heil Sound changed and Bob took on the new title of  Founder and CEO Emeritus.

Bob will tell us “The steps it takes in designing a product from a dream to product in stores.” We will learn from one of the greats how a vision becomes a product you can buy.
