Murphy has been a major market air talent for over 20 years.
His contributions and endeavors in Rock radio have given him
an "earwitness" account of the development of the
music industry over the past three decades. In addition to
numerous stints in Classic Rock both in Miami FL and Dallas
TX, he got to be part of groundbreaking formats like the first
all-compact disc WGTR-FM, cutting edge KDGE in Dallas which
was among the very first crop of Alternative Rock outfits
in the USA and the AAA/Adult Alternative WSHE, in the mid
90s. Bill recalls, "All of these opportunities gave me
an up close look at the changes in the business. They also
had major influences on me creatively. I'm noticing alot of
my personal work lately has some of that mellow 1996 smooth,
soothing sound....I don't know if that's good or bad! Ha!"
Bill has peen passing on his radio production skills teaching
Pro Tools classes at The Connecticut School of Broadcasting
in Ft. Lauderdale. He's also the Public Address Announcer
for the NHL's Florida Panthers' home games. He remains active
on the South Florida radio waves doing voiceovers and commercials
for several local clients.
emphasis turned solidly to Murphonics in 2004 when Bill designed
and constructed (with some help from friends) an over-the-top
home studio in the second bedroom of his Ft. Lauderdale townhome.
"I spent more than three months carefully building and
designing it, making changes as I went. The acoustic treatment
is influenced by a "rough average" of all of the
scientific do's and dont's I researched over the past couple
of years. There is some math involved, but it's not hysterical.
The room sounds and feels great and that's all that matters.
The main thing was coming up with a room I would look forward
to working in every day"
