1930's Ipod cane !


So that a pedestrian may enjoy broadcast programs wherever he goes, a German, inventor, Alfred Mintus, has devised what he calls a “radio walking stick.” Outwardly it resembles an ordinary cane, but the interior contains a miniature receiver and batteries. The user has merely to plant the stick in the ground, adjust a pair of pocket ‘phones to his ears, and listen in, as illustrated in the photograph.
It only remains now for the inventor to perfect the apparatus so the pedestrian need not interrupt his walk while listening in
, a possibility foreseen by the inventor of the cane.

Found Tapes

Harold Shellinx : Found Tapes Exhibition

"Some years ago, the Dutch musician, sound artist and researcher started a tape collection by wandering through the streets of cities and suburbia, looking for leftovers, picking up thrown away tapes that otherwise would have been worn up by weathers and time to finally vanish completely.
On the Found Tapes Exhibition website, one can not only view photographs of his found tapes but also browse the contents of these revived Frankenstein style mix-tapes, but listen to and download their soundings as well. And from time to time, the artist invites the audience to live performances based on the acoustic treasures of his collection."

LP#2 Arnold Stang's Waggish Tales (1960)

Arnold Stang's Waggish Tales of
Peter and The Wolf and Ferdinand The Bull

A classic entertainer from the 1950's and 1960's ...
The liner notes says : "
Arnold Stang, wearing the glasses familiar to millions of TV, movies and legitimate stage fans, raised his voice a pitch to its instantly-recognized nasal tones, and proceeded to impart his distinctive charm to the classic children's stories "Peter and The Wolf" and "Ferdinand The Bull". At Mr. Tang first words, the men in the control room smiled and settled back for a program of pure enjoyment by one of their favorite entertainers."
