Untitled[edit]

This is in fact verbatim from the Library of Congress site. Is this public-domain? (A lot of US govt. stuff is.) Even if so, it's rather puffish. Vicki Rosenzweig

Yes, this is public domain, written by the archivists at the Library of Congress. The copyright notice is careful to disclaim original authorship for all material; however, it is very clear that the "Today in History" features are all original material of the library, and thus public domain. - RobLa 23:37 Jan 18, 2003 (UTC)

Popular culture[edit]

In general, Wiki dislikes these lists of random bits of information. I suggest writing these into the article where possible and deleting this section before it runs long and gets out of hand. The Attractions section is getting a bit unwieldy too. Markhh (talk) 00:06, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Missing information[edit]

This article is, basically, a stub with a laundry list attached. I'm not very familiar with the topic, but I'd expect at least a description of the hall and its history. Even the German Wikipedia article has an overview of its history. If you can read German, I would consider this the minimum requirements for this article. It would be nice if someone with knowledge about this landmark venue could add some wisdom to the article... -- megA (talk) 14:53, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: Never mind, I just discovered the sections I missed were blanked by an IP two months ago. I re-installed them. -- megA (talk) 14:59, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

First use of ribbon microphone[edit]

When the Radio City Music Hall opened in 1932 it had a state of the art sound system including 40 RCA PB-31 Ribbon Microphones.
