Hosted by the Memphis Music Commission. Campman felt that the system was advanced enough to begin trying to find a manufacturer to buy it; they had decided to aim for selling the rights to produce the console, as Sanders was not in the business of making and selling commercial electronics. Dennis Quaid is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist. He could only watch as his year labor of love was hurriedly completed by a bunch of scabs with a harsh deadline and no budget. The ongoing events in Libya are not similar to those which happened in Tunisia in January and in Egypt a few weeks ago The recent rocket attack on an Egyptian navy vessel and the arrest of suspected terrorists allegedly plotting bomb attacks along the Suez Canal raise serious concerns about the security of this trade route of strategic importance for Egypt.

She is an interpreter of the highest order. Her gift is being able to take a song, whether well known or obscure, from any genre and making it completely her own. Bettye has recorded Dylan songs in the past, but this is the first time that she has devoted an entire album to one writer. She will be performing the album in its entirety, along with other songs from throughout her career.
Her career began in , at the age of 16, in Detroit, Michigan. She recorded for numerous major labels, including Atco, Epic, and Motown, over the course of the s through the s.
The s started what she calls her "Fifth Career. Now 72 years old, she is still performing with the ferocity of a woman half her age. She is one of very few of her contemporaries who were recording during the birth of soul music in the 60s and is still creating vital recordings today.

With each new record, he challenges himself to deliver something new, something fresh, and keep things interesting whilst, at the same time, staying true to the roots of blues music. Hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream. How do you describe the offbeat antics of David Feherty? It really was stupendous. It was two hours of zaniness and madcap storytelling.
People were coming out of their seats with laughter. Postmodern Jukebox is back PMJ has always been about using modern media to turn back the clock to a time we always imagine in shades of black and white — simpler, more carefree, without so many mind-boggling devices and distractions, every one streaming in hi-def at any hour of the day! The reset button does not reset the game, but instead is used by different games to reset individual elements, such as making a player's dot visible after it is turned off during a game.
The system can be powered by six C batteries , which were included. An optional AC power supply was sold separately. The Odyssey lacks sound capability and can only display monochrome white shapes on a blank black screen. Internally, the Odyssey architecture is composed of digital computing parts. The circuitry is implemented in diode—transistor logic using discrete transistors and diodes , rather than the newly emerging transistor—transistor logic integrated circuits, due to cost concerns. The games themselves do not use cartridges like later consoles, but instead use "game cards" composed of printed circuit boards that plug into the console.
These cards modify the internal circuitry like a set of switches or jumpers , causing the Odyssey to display different components and react to inputs differently. Multiple games use the same cards, with different instructions given to the player to change the style of game. The Odyssey is capable of displaying three square dots and a vertical line on the screen.
Two of the dots are controlled by the two players, and the third by the system itself. The main console has two dials, one of which moves the vertical line across the screen, and one which adjusts the speed of the computer-controlled dot.
Different games direct the player to adjust the dials to different positions, for example to change the center line of a tennis game into the side wall of a handball game. The games include plastic overlays which stick to the television via static cling, to create visuals for the game.
Different games that use the same game card can have different overlays, which can change a game with the same controls from, for example, a mountain ski path to a movement-based Simon Says game. In addition to the overlays, the Odyssey came with dice, poker chips, score sheets, play money, and game boards much like a traditional board game.
Named the Shooting Gallery, the rifle-shaped device registered a hit when pointed at a light source such as a dot on the television screen. In , while working for military contractor Loral Electronics, engineer Ralph H. Baer was assigned to build a television set; while doing so, Baer claims he had the idea to build something into a television set that the owner could control, rather than only hooking it up to a remote television station. Baer did not pursue the idea, but it returned to him in August while waiting for a bus.
As Channel LP had little to do with the typical military contracts Sanders worked on, rather than bring the idea to his bosses Baer instead commandeered an empty room and assigned one of his technicians, Bob Tremblay, to work on it with him. Baer spent the next few months designing further prototypes, and in February assigned technician Bill Harrison to begin building the project.
Harrison spent the next few months in between other projects building out successive modifications to the prototype. Baer, meanwhile, collaborated with engineer Bill Rusch on the design of the console, including developing the basis of many games for the system. The first game was developed by May, a two-player game where the players repeatedly press a button in competition to fill or empty a bucket of water, and by June multiple games were completed for what was then a second prototype box.
Baer demonstrated the new prototype to Campman, who enjoyed the shooting game, increased funding, and recommended Baer demonstrate the project to senior management.
Baer additionally felt that he was not proving successful at designing fun games for the system; to make up for this he formally added Bill Rusch, who had helped him come up with the initial games for the console, to the project.
Campman felt that the system was advanced enough to begin trying to find a manufacturer to buy it; they had decided to aim for selling the rights to produce the console, as Sanders was not in the business of making and selling commercial electronics.
The team first approached the cable television industry, and the prototype attracted the attention of TelePrompter Corporation, who had seen it during a visit. After a few months of talks, cash-flow problems forced TelePrompter to back out in April It was picked up again in September, this time without Rusch, and went through two more iterations resulting in January in the seventh prototype, known as the "Brown Box" due to the wood-grain stickers on the casing. Baer demonstrated the system to several companies, who all expressed enthusiasm; only RCA was willing to purchase the device, however, and an agreement could not be reached.
The three creators of the Brown Box again demonstrated the device to Magnavox in July ; they received a tepid reaction from most of the executives, but Vice President of Marketing Gerry Martin was in favor and Magnavox agreed to produce the console.
After a long period of negotiations the two companies finally signed an agreement in January Magnavox designed the exterior of the machine, and re-engineered some the internals with some consultation from Baer and Harrison; they removed the ability to display color, used only the three dial controller, and changed the system of selecting games from a dial to separate game cards that modified the console's circuitry when plugged into the console.
Baer was upset with the board game additions, which he felt were pointless add-ons that would go unused by players. Magnavox announced the system's launch date of September , and demonstrated it for months prior to Magnavox dealerships and media.
Magnavox began advertising Odyssey in mid-September , including an appearance on the game show What's My Line? As neither Pong nor the term "video game" existed, the company described the console as "the new electronic game of the future" and "closed-circuit electronic playground". The Odyssey was sold only through Magnavox dealers; the company hoped that as the first such product, consumers would visit its stores. The company is fully regulated and licenced, maintaining the highest standards of security and game integrity.
