In the early Spring of 1945, the Memorex Corporation wanted to do an experiment on how different sound formats effected people in love.
They were just developing the recorded sound to an invention called the cassette tape. They were hoping through experiments, to prove that music on the cassette tape was no different than hearing it on the radio or live.
To avoid city noise, they held their experiments on a yacht in Lake Erie.
Erma and Phillip Stanton were one of the volunteer couples. They had been in love for over 2 years and were planning a June wedding of that same year.
They danced to the music from a piano, a radio and then the cassette tape. To avoid bias, they had the couple to wear headphones and dance on the main deck, while the music was played below deck, so they could not tell where the music was originating from.
Erma and Phillip did so well with the live music and the radio. They just held each other tighter and more affection. When it got to the cassette tape, you could slowly see Erma and Phillip’s stress level rise. The music coming from the cassette tape cause flashbacks of every argument they had over the course of their relationship. Erma got so agitated, she stopped dancing, slapped Phillip’s face and stormed off to cry alone in her cabin.
Sadly, the wedding was called off and Memorex decided to cancel the experiment and sell it to the Norelco Corporation. The Norelco refined Memorex’s technology and the cassette tape came out in 1964.
Erma and Phillip, never saw each other again!
