1882 __ Telephone concert in Las Alamos
Comment : On April 14th, 1882, Mrs. A.G. Hood gave a very interesting telephone concert at her residence. The music was furnished by a piano and a connection of telephone wires conveyed the lady's playing simultaneously to Las Alamos, the Optic office and the Hot Springs Hotel. Mr. Hood was director of the wire musicale and initaited the hearers into new telephone marvels.
