Nicholas Radina

Hi! I’m Nicholas!

I’m a freelance audio engineer, educator, writer and musician proudly from Cincinnati, OH.

My 25+ year freelance audio engineering career has taken me on wonderful journeys. Small and large scale live events, high level touring, special events, children’s theater, executive corporate work and the occasional dip in large bodies of water.

You can find me stage left as monitor engineer for the band, O.A.R  and 98 Degrees as well as stage right smacking cowbells at home at Cincinnati’s Salsa on the Square  — which I co-founded in 2008.

I write for the magazine Live Sound International and companion website, ProSoundWeb — focussing on helping fellow sound engineers by offering live sound techniques, fundamentals and tips.

For over ten years, I was the house sound engineer at the historic 20th Century Theater in Cincinnati.

In 2008 I began my work with the nationally recognized Cincinnati Parks — restructuring and managing the audio department to help produce hundreds of outdoor events in several beautiful Cincinnati parks.
