Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

The Living Sound of Cleveland - Free MP3!

Here's an MP3 from a promotional 7" record extolling the virtues of Cleveland Ohio. WJW was a radio station in Cleveland until 1985, but the call letters live on today as the city's Fox TV affiliate. I'm not sure whom this record was intended for, possibly potential advertisers who don't know how great Cleveland is? The record doesn't bear a year, but my guess is that this is from some time in the 60's when the "beautiful music" format first slithered onto our radio dials.

The song does chose some queer aspects of Cleveland to celebrate (the lyrics lilt about "The barges on the canal"?), but is a great example of radio jingle production. Ignore the claw-like hand of the label art, and download the free MP3 and see if you agree. Extra points if you actually remember the station!
