Music programs using radiated RF are of special interest here; I wrote
one which allows playing preprogrammed tunes as well as using the
upper-row function keys as a keyboard (realtime and record)for a Wang
700 calculator (we'll make it available on the net at some point).
The music programs for the CDC 160 series, IBM 1620, and others
worked well with AM radios, some machines did better on FM (depends
on shielding and clock speed). Some systems (eg. CDC 1604, upper and
lower 3000, etc.) used the console speaker for better fidelity.
And of course there were a slew (forgive the pun) of line-printer
'singing' programs for many machines.

As far as I know, this may have been written here at the U of Minnesota.
I assume the Pascal Compiler that was written here is already available
someplace (it was once distributed by Decus). I have the original
floppies that were submitted to decus and returned by decus.
