AES Oral History 023: Richard Burden. Well known for his work in FM, AM, and television audio systems, Richard Burden had an early interest in science and graduated from RCA Institute in 1952. Mr. Burden has been an independent communications engineer since 1960, providing technical services to numerous radio and TV stations, networks, and manufacturers for many years. Among hundreds of activities, he developed and demonstrated a proposed FM stereo broadcast system (Phantodyne), designed equipment for low-power radiating cable FM and AM systems for college radio stations, and participated in a wide variety of broadcast-related standards committees including the Ad Hoc Committee for the Study of Television Sound in 1973 and the Radio Systems Committee in 1980. Mr. Burden became a student AES member in 1951, and has been very active in the Society for many years. He is a strong advocate for continuing education for engineers along with outreach to prospective engineering students. He has served as Vice President of the AES Western Region and Los Angeles Section Chair. Mr. Burden received an AES Fellowship in 1975, and the Society of Broadcast Engineers Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005. Interviewed by Irv Joel. Edited by Harry Hirsch.
