Speaking of references to bygone technolgies, there was a humorous segment
on today's (03/03) "Weekend Edition/Saturday" on NPR.  From time to time
they read listeners' e-mail, and they intro this segment with a musical piece
featuring clickety-clack sounds behind the instrumental.  A listener
wrote : "what is the PERCUSSION instrument in the background of that jingle?"
The host replied...that isn't a percussion instrument, it's a good old-fashioned
TYPEWRITER.  I surmise the questioner was under 30.
