I remember staying with my sister ...

I remember staying with my sister in Sacto and riding my bike over to Enharmonik every day for a week to mix the album with John.

...
I DIDN'T realize that both HECKLER and Enharmonik/the HANGAR was run out of the same building and by the same person, John Baccigaluppi, more street cred.
A couple years later a few friends and I started a new band, eightfourseven, and when it came time to record an EP we knew where we wanted to go, Enharmonik. Sadly we found out that Enharmonik had "closed" but John had started a new studio…… the HANGAR……..in the same room………with the same gear, so we booked it, which leads me to my first HANGAR memory.
...
For our second record, "THE MAN" himself, John Baccigaluppi wanted to record us, and to 2 tape as well. We started the record in the small control room across from the stage. The studio made a transformation in the middle of our recording and we finished it in the big brand new control room, which was formally just a dark scary room with a beat up mini ramp in it. Yup, the same one Chino from the deftones was skating on in the "7 Words" video. A couple other things stand out in my mind about these sessions. One day while recording a song, John comes out of the control room and asks nonchalantly, "hey, do you guys mind if John Doe comes by?"……………."um no!!! I thought to myself. Sure enough a couple hours later John Doe from "X" walks in while we are doing drum takes. That was my first glimpse into who you might see at the HANGAR. The last thing that stands out is John wanted a verse in one of our songs to sound weird so he had me learn the whole verse backwards with the idea to flip the tape backwards record the verse backwards and then flip it back. so I spent days and nights listening and learning the verse backwards. When it came time to record it, he didn't like the idea anymore.
...
I started by calling John at the HANGAR to see if he needed an intern and he didn't need one at the time and it seemed that none of the studios in town needed one either but that was ok because I really just wanted to work at the HANGAR.
...
Let me just wrap this up while two of you are still awake by saying that none of this, HECKLER, Tape Op, Enharmonik, the HANGAR would have worked as well as it all has without John Baccigaluppi at the helm. Over the past few years I have gotten to know John a lot better, while either working at Tape Op or in the studio, or just out surfing in Bolinas. Without getting too sappy, John, with Tape Op, and the HANGAR has single handedly made it possible for me to learn how to be an engineer and follow my dream. He is one of those rare people that seems to take pride in helping and watching people succeed. So many musicians, engineers, producers and once musical tinkerers have gotten their start at the HANGAR and still continue to work there for the last remaining days. John's never moved backwards so I'm excited for what's just beyond the horizon and grateful that I can be a part of it.
...
The first time I remember being inside the building was while attending an underground/after hours show in the late 80s/early 90s before John moved in.
...
Though John (directly responsible for me becoming a producer) was gracious, encouraging and helpful, I chose to pretend that I knew exactly what I was doing... hoping he'd never find out I was making it up while stumbling through the record making process (though now I'm sure he knew).

...
Julie Ann Bee recorded her first EP by herself with a little bit of help from John in the B-Room last fall and named it after the studio: Bee Eee Pee.
...
John and Julie went back into the Bee room the same day Eric Broyhill at Monster Lab was mastering the forthcoming Sea of Bees full length, Songs for the Ravens, and banged out Bang a Drum.
...
John and I started kicking around the idea of doing remote recordings for people and bands based on a one inch MCI 8-track that John had bought and said, "The beauty of this machine is that it's portable.
...
I talked to John about just doing it with my laptop and abandoning the whole 8-track thing. But, he asked why go through all this trouble to do a remote and then use a "guitar center" rig? That would kind of defeat the vibe of the whole project, and after thinking about it, I knew he was right.

Founder John Baccigaluppi is being forced to close the legendary space for economic reasons.

( Listen to Hangar owner John Baccigaluppi interviewed by Beth Ruyak on Tuesday's Insight )
...
On a recent weekday morning owner John Baccigaluppi gave us one last tour of the storied facility.
"Come on in you guys. You want to go into the back? beckons Baccigaluppi as he guides me and Capital Public Radio photographer Andrew Nixon through a grungy lobby with faded plaid upholstered couches and dusty end tables.
He opens the door to a huge room with a hodgepodge of microphones, cables and instruments.
...
"And we have this just ratty old Lazy-Boy chair that Kanye was kind of kick-back in," says Baccigaluppi. "And we always referred to that as the Kanye chair after that." But West was just a footnote in the history of the Hangar. He only recorded there for a few days. Baccigaluppi is much more interested in talking about The Hangar's role in recording sessions that lasted for months by bands like the folk-rock group Sea of Bees, indie pop band Little Wings and jazz saxophonist John Tchicai.
...
Baccigaluppi says he was inspired to bolster his instrument collection in part by the Beatles' albums made at the famous Abbey Road studios.
"That's what I always thought makes those Beatles records so cool is the arrangements are so amazing," he explains. "And a lot of that's because Abbey Road had a bunch of cool instruments floating around the building."
With the advances in digital technology these days when musicians can record just about anywhere, Baccigaluppi says huge recording studios like Abbey Road and The Hangar are becoming extinct. There are just a few such studios left.
"On the West Coast there's Skywalker Sound and Capitol Studios and for another month this place. And you know it's going to be kind of sad when it goes," says Baccigaluppi.
The Hangar is going, Baccigaluppi explains, because this converted warehouse is falling apart. The owners plan to renovate. But Baccigaluppi says he wouldn't be able to afford the higher rent. Fortunately he found an affordable spot in Marin County and plans to move a smaller version of his operation there.
So how does he feel about closing The Hangar doors?
"I hate to see it go. It's been such a great space," says Baccigaluppi. "I mean I'm really excited for what's next but I'll always miss this place. I'm resigned to what's happening…you know, making the best of the last few weeks and trying to move forward."
Baccigaluppi isn't cutting his ties to the Sacramento music scene. He plans to help a colleague open a smaller studio a few blocks away from The Hangar.
