This is a re-enactment of the Homebrew Computer Club member Steve Dompier's switching in of an 8080 program to play "Fool in the Hill" (the Beatles) and "Daisy" (of HAL-9000 fame in the film '2001') on his Altair through radio interference on an AM radio as reported in newsletter issue number three of the Homebrew Computer Club. This "performance" occured on April 16, 1975, and the re-enactment was held on Nov 3rd, 2005 and again at our 30th anniversary event of the Homebrew Computer Club on Nov 5th, 2005. Later Erik re-recorded these on a better radio and without all the conversations behind to produce these pristine renditions.
