  1. Don't get too excited: the law only applies to broadcast (over-the-air) channels, not cable channels. The FCC does not regulate cable to the same extent as broadcasts.
  2. Probably not on the current top ten list of many here, but some oldsters like myself were wowed upon seeing him in the Monterey Pop Festival and Woodstock movies. Thanks to George Harrison for furthering his exposure to US audiences. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ravi_Shankar
  3. I was fortunate to see him in the late 70s or early 80s. A lifetime of jazz entertainment. http://news.yahoo.com/manager-jazz-composer-pianist-dave-brubeck-dies-170407395.html Someone make this a hyperlink, please.
  4. More like dragged out of a stranger's house in a hurry and thrown into a pick-up bed or van. I'd certainly stay away.
  5. Hmm...he suspiciously burned just days after Lance Armstrong was concluded to have doped in all his Tour de France wins. Early in his TdF series, Lance jokingly referred to himself as "Big Tex" after the custom of some European cyclists in adopting flamboyant nicknames. [*-)]
  6. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/technology-blog/world-most-expensive-speakers-cost-nearly-5-000-175451602.html I'm very happy with my Klipsch, thank you []
  7. "Vonski Speaks" is a great album, even a good introduction for the non-jazz-enthusiast.
  8. OOH! OOH! OOH! .....Goodbye, Mr. Kot-ter. []
  9. I'd say around $300-$350 (based on some ebay prices I saw a while back). If you can pick them up, consider that you are saving considerable shipping cost (shipping is not recommended at all for speakers that size due to damage risk), so paying a bit more may be justified.
  10. The KG 2.2 or 2.5 were designed as centers for the KG line. Being a small "bookshelf" size, they were popular in their day, and therefore are fairly often available on the auction sites. Should be able to get one for $100 or less. I would not worry about putting a KG 2.2, 3.2, or 4.2 in with your 4.5s, but other opinions may differ.
  11. Try using various tapes (masking, duct) to 'grab' the dent and pull it out. Another method is to bend a straight pin at a right angle, insert it in the dent and pull it out, then put a dab of white glue over the hole. Repair cuts with white glue and a couple of layers of tissue paper. Academys usually go for more than $300, so it was a killer deal.
  12. A MD album that departs from the early 50s-60s jazz quartet style is "Amandla" (1989) which is one of his jazz fusion efforts. To me, it is far more accessible than "******* Brew," i.e. more melodic, and is among his more contemporary sounds.
