    Actually, her name was Miss Woods. Rose Mary Woods. ;)

    And it was determined afterwards that in order to "accidentally" erase the missing 18 minutes in question, she would have had to bend herself into a pretzel and stretch her right foot ( it was a foot operated controller) out to about 9 feet away from her normal dictation position.

    That microphone would probably be bitchin', on harmonica? Just plug it into an active direct box.

    Yeah that looks like my first recorder? Mine was actually with a VU meter and called an " Echo Tape ". Which was rather funny since it's only had 2 heads and you couldn't get any echoes off the tape. That echo I didn't get until I got my grandfathers Presto 900. The forerunner to the Scully. But mine never had the 10.5 inch reel adapters. I ended up eventually just using the electronics which had three microphone inputs.

    What a great old picture that was. I think I still have my Presto 900 manual? Probably not the Magnacord P-63?
