Musical Anesthesia, 1950 2
III: Events
An audio engineer of Music for Surgery in the new Nathan Goldblatt Memorial Hospital at the University of Chicago sets up the musical programs for the day. Once prepared, the duonetic tape recorders used in the control room self-operate. Each recorder utilizes two recording channels on a 4,800-foot reel of standard one-quarter inch magnetic tape, and plays four hours before repeating a program. At the conclusion of two hour’s playing, a solenoid switch automatically reverses the direction of the tape and places the lower channel in operation.
