Today we announce the winners of Steve Guttenberg's Audiophillie Music Awards for Excellence in Recorded Sound!!


Steve Guttenberg/CNET

Steve Guttenberg joins the show today to unveil the winners of the Audiophilliac awards , popularly known as the "Audiophillie Music Awards for Excellence in Recorded Sound"--started right here on The 404. The premise of the contest? Not the quality of the songs, but the quality of the song recordings. There's a reason Guttenberg's ears are insured for a million dollars.

The six winners of the Audiophillies receive Monster Turbine Pro Gold and Copper headphones. The strange thing about these headphones is that the Copper model are superior to the Gold, but both are supremely superior to the stock earbuds that come with most music players. Be sure to check out the winners--we've included links to the songs, and the winning submissions are not only musically impressive, but also sound great from a recording engineer's perspective. Congrats to all the winners, and thanks to everyone who took the time to make a recording!

"Move On" by Magnet South

"Georgia" by Alan Carter

"Gimmie Mine" by Anthony Ceravolo

"Robin Hall" by Robin Hall

"Car Commercial" by Jeff Montville

"Blood Sweat and Funk" by David Adkins

Also on today's show, Steve reveals that he may actually be the long lost half-brother to Steve Guttenberg, the actor of "Police Academy" fame. He also gives us a family history of his father's salesman days travelling around with transistor radios!
