New Sounds in Heaven

Pat gets an electronic no-prize for bringing us news that synthesizer innovator Robert A. Moog has died. I'm pretty sure Ellen's sister Nina plays a genuine Moog synth in her band.
eMail this entry!
I've been a synth nut for most of my adult life, so I was cynically amused when ABC Radio ran a piece about Moog's death yesterday and used the beginning of The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again" as the soundtrack. Evidently not knowing that that particular piece of music was performed on an Arp synthesizer, not a Moog.
File that one under "They all sound the same to me!!"
The MSM getting critical details wrong about a story? Say it ain't so!!!
