Nik was a talented and highly motivated young assistant at World Pacific Records in the 1950s when Lord Buckley blew into his life. Working under owner/producer Richard Boch, Nik helped produce recording sessions that eventually became some of the most famous albums in the Buckley canon. His responsibilities included getting Lord Buckley down to the recording studio each night after His Lordship finished his gig at the Club Renaissance. Nik has produced over 300 albums. Recently he produced a 4 CD box set of singer Bobby Darin's work. In 1997 he was heard on Fresh Air talking with host Terry Gross about Bobby Darin's music and their close friendship. Regrettably the Good Prince swooped the satellite on January 2, 1998.
