Blattnerphone



the current (November) issue of Scientific American has an interesting
article titled "100 Years of Magnetic Memories" about the technology
of magnetic recording.  I'd never heard of the Blattnerphone, used by
the BBC for rebroadcasting radio programs in the 1930's.  Inserting
the reels of heavy steel ribbon required two people.
