Rediffusion background music tape machine

Recommended Posts

Submitted for your approval, a subtle torture device aimed at store staff, or "loungers" who spend more time than money in the shop.;) It's "Techmoan" again, showing off decrepit, er, "classic" electronics of the past, in this early (1960's?) tape cassette baclground music player from Rediffusion of Jersey. First appearing in 1957, this early "endless loop" tape player ran at 3.75 inches/second, resulting in frequent cassette changes at the business. Good news! The mighty "Techmoan Family Puppets" show up...in the middle of the video!? There's a "further developments" segment that runs after the main video, which would interest mainly tech geeks tracking the company, which started as a "wired speaker subscription radio program rebroadcaster" to non-electric-power homes in 1927 and faded out in the 1980's. It's definitely NOT your grand dad's 4- or 8-track tape player...
