• Short Summary

    Peggy demonstrates a new "radio-piano" that can simulate the tone of many instruments.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "The Choose-Your-Own-Sound Piano! The very latest, demonstrated by Peggy Cochrane of Variety and B.B.C. renown."

    Peggy demonstrates a new "radio-piano". It is called a "Neo-Bechstein" (sp?). Various shots of the piano and Peggy as she demonstrates it. It can produce numerous effects and is heard through the medium of a loud speaker - an early synthesiser perhaps? The piano can simulate the tone of many instruments including organ, spinet, saxophone and music box.

    Peggy plays a nice tune. In L/S we see the size of the loud speaker - huge!
