Seattle Sounds Archiving Project (SSAP): Michael Wing Collection

Seattle Sounds aims to preserve, promote, and share deep archival cuts from the city and region's many musics and sounds.


Michael Wing (CPA) studied radio/tv communications and business at the University of Washington. He graduated with a degree in business administration from the UW in the early 1970s. While attending UW, he worked at KOMO Television in Seattle, where he prepared and sequenced film for broadcast, as well as assisted with special production projects. During this time he also worked in music, producing sessions at Kearney Barton's Audio Recording Studio in Seattle with such artists as Keith Kessler, Kent Kessler and Marc Shulman, with members of the Downbeats, the Impulses and the City Zu as backing musicians. This collection contains MTW Productions master tapes and recordings of Alan Lund & The Diplomats, Keith Kessler, Marc Shulman, and Kent Kessler. The collection also contains Pacific Northwest rock LPs of the 1960s by bands like The Fabulous Wailers and The Sonics. These are also included on the flash drive in the collection.
