"Beginning tomorrow, the sounds of Los Angeles--birdsong, traffic and a million mobile phone conversations--will be joined by the likes of Chopsticks and Cole Porter compositions when 30 pianos are installed from Lincoln Heights to the Santa Monica Pier." The event will run for three weeks... and is part of the public project "Play Me, I'm Yours," created by Luke Jerram. The project has brought street pianos to cities across the world... starts April 12th in LA... check it out!
Introduced in April 1954, the RCA CT-100 was the second all-electronic consumer color television set in the USA, preceded by the Westinghouse H840CK15 by a few weeks. The color picture tube measured 15 inches diagonally. The viewable picture was just 11½ inches wide. The sets were made at RCA's plant in Bloomington, Indiana. The sets cost $1000, half the price of a new low-end automobile. By the end of 1954, RCA released an improved color TV with a 21-inch picture tube.
