This reminds me of a certain Southpark episode.
Korla Pandit and Jette Satin, 1951.
Mr. Pandit was one of the many acts that recorded for Fantasy before they hit paydirt with Creedence Clearwater Revival . . .
Korla Pandit with his cat, early 1950s.
Man, he had a pair of pipes on him. My mum is a huge Mathis fan (early tho, natch). She saw him in Leicester a couple of times during the late 50's. Lovely photo. I want his sweater!
Was the "color calibration" for engineers at the station or home users?
Yes, Sharon Tate.
An F'd up film chain (how, depending on such variables as the lamp in the projector, how weak any of the vidicon tubes were, etc.). That's why the "greyscale" bullseye in the center may appear beigeish or peach-brownish or greenish or bluish or purplish or reddish at home. Which explains why when they could, TV stations switched to electronic color bars for the benefit of both engineers and those at home. Still, there was something about those test patterns that color bars could not conjure up. The WRC pattern, for example, was not how it would've looked originally.
You really are dear and grateful people: You, those who vote, those who comment, post photos... You give me very good feelings and I want to wish you a long, happy and full life. Thank you.
