Steve:

I hope you don't mind if I attach a job advertisement from New York Public
Library to your message. I've been trying for two days to send this message
to the ARSClist and for one reason or another, I haven't been able to do it
as a new message. So, I'm hoping that I can send it by responding to someone
else's message on the ARSClist. So here goes one more time...

Would like to share this job opening in the Rodgers & Hammerstein Archives
of Recorded Sound/New York Public Library, with the ARSC community. Please
share this with any qualified and interested colleagues that may not be on
the ARSClist.
See below for the job description and application procedures.

Thanks.

Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] Another SSS playback technique?

Serious SSS will distribute so much gum on the guides leading to the heads 
that the tape will squeal and eventually stop altogether.

And it will pull oxide off tape leaves as they unwind from the reel.

This may work for a bit on SSS of mild-mannered Clark Kent variety but 
certainly not for Super-Shead.
