        Would you like to hook up your IPod or mp3 player to the sound system
and be able to control the volume yourself from the platform?
Ben Glenn told Matt Bowman he does it as follows.

Go to RadioShack and purchase the three items above:
Y-Adapter Audio Cable                         # 4202550     7.49
Y-Adapter                                               # 2740893     4.99
Matching Transformer Audio Adapter  # 2740017   16.49
Total about $31 including tax

Hook these three together as shown above.
Plug the small end into your player and the other end into the microphone
cable after removing the microphone.
Now YOU are in control of the volume and sequence of your recording, not the
sound booth operator. Be sure to test before the service so you don't blast out
too loud when you begin.

   Chalk Art classes with Matt Bowman at Alpha Arts in March.
