If it weren't for the mowed grass, raked leaves, and a '98 Honda Gold Wing parked in front of the door, you might not know the place was still in operation. A large sign on a pole in the front yard announces the business as Musicol Recording Studio, complete with throwback treble clef logo. If the sign hints at the studio's 1960s vintage, the mint green siding completes the picture. Set on a corner lot in northeast Columbus, Ohio, it's a curious structure: two Cape Cod homes joined together and abutting a two-story cinder-block box labeled "Studio A." A fenced cell tower looms over the property, and just a few doors down is the sound wall of Interstate 71, wending its way northeast to Cleveland and southwest to Cincinnati.
It's like that.
