Welcome to the NOTECANNONS section of the MM FORUM. This is the forum for www.notecannons.com - a website hosted by Colin McCubbin that is dedicated to history of National, Dobro, Supro, and all things Dopyera related.
Below is a link to a short clip from new BBC4 series, Sound of Song, Episode 1 'The Recording Revolution,' featuring a Stroh violin, with emphasis on its utility in the context of early recording technologies (as demonstrated in the clip - strangely, couldn't work out how to directly embed the Beeb's video here..)

Many thanks bod, that was great! When I try to see the whole prog Aunty Beeb's i-player unfortunately tells me that it won't serve content to my IP which isn't in Britain, but the clip you reference does play.. ;-) I'll boot up a copy of firefox with TOR (an IP spoofer that masks one's IP)and see if I can view it that way, which I have used to watch Wimbledon in the past..
Just came across this video by chance on youtube, unfortunately the linked site astroguitare.com seems to be non-existent and my web searches have failed to find any more info about it. Could any French speaker translate what "Hoodoo Man" is saying in the clip?
