In this podcast, Charlie Butten shares about how the King Biscuit came into being and how it was first used at our Clear-Com facility.
It all started with Bob Cohen telling Charlie, "I've got a surprise for you." He pulled out a speaker station and showed it to Charlie. Bob continued, "I call it the King Biscuit." He even had the station labeled King Biscuit 100. It was around that time that Charlie discovered the principle of anti-sidetone as well.
During that period when Clear-Com was still at 759 Harrison St. in San Francisco, the King Biscuit 100 was set up on a wall on the first floor of the facility. When people came through the building, our staff would ask who was there and talk to them before they came up the stairs.
