Are you going to tell us now that those notes were G, E, and C (that
is, the famous NBC chimes)? Do you know what the notes were? And fast
forward a bit more than half a century to the mid 1950s (and speaking
of notes), does anyone else remember a music-appreciation program
called "A Note to You" on the old WHDH (AM)? The program was hosted by
a Northeastern U professor by the name of Roland Nadeau and used as
its theme (IIRC) Camille Saint-Seans "Danse Macabre."
