Larry Hammond's Music Machine

The Laurens Hammond story needs to be told. Over a hundred patents. A tickless clock, automatic transmission, the Hammond organ. The pipe organ people got so sore because the Hammond was killing their business that they got the Federal Trade Commision involved.

All messed up

The microwave calls me a child and the computer says my java and cookies are messed up. Plus that, I had to ask my wife what an error is in baseball and I still don't get it. Etaoin says I need dunkers. That's probably what's wrong. My java is full of crumbs from dunking too many cookies.
