One of the best voices from the Islands. I wish there were more live footage of Desmond but there is little.

In Search Of Quality - Construction Of A 25ft Horn WE555 - Wireless World 1929

This is one of the coolest articles I've posted in a while. A 1929 article appearing in Wireless World documenting the building of a large 25ft no compromise Wente and Thuras style horn. The driver is of course the Western Electric 555W. My favorite feature is the use the ceiling as the horn mouth.

Selecting your Hi-Fi Kit from Popular Electronics. This is the good stuff. I actually don't have any of these kits listed. Most of the kit amps I have bought have been non functional and likey were never functional.

Dance Craze 1981

If your into two tone than this is for you. Great stuff I wish I could have seen it in the 80's as it would have rocked my world. I was a huge ska junkie.
