Charles Gerhardt (1927 - 1999)

Charles Gerhardt began to learn the piano at the age of five, and to compose when he was nine. He studied music and science at the College of William and Mary and at the Universities of Illinois and Southern California, and music at the Juilliard School in New York, where he also worked at the famous record shop The Record Hunter. Passionately interested in the art of recording, he soon entered the record industry, working for RCA Victor between 1951 and 1955 first as an engineer and editor, and later as a producer and engineer. One of his first jobs was to prepare historic recordings for reissue on the then-new LP format, using the new medium of tape to edit out scratches and other unwanted sounds. From 1955 he was at Westminster Records until the company ceased trading, when he moved to Bell Sound where he recorded numerous pop singers including Eddie Fisher. He was then approached by RCA and the Reader’s Digest magazine to participate in the latter’s recording programme.
