Mr. Mike was one of those toys that children could not get enough off, and as parents we thought it was wonderfull too. (especially when the batteries would be empty. )
now Mr. Mike represents the Robot Rivendell system which creates and presents those wonderful playlists and categories that we listen to each day. With the use of mathematical formulas each day is different and a wide variety of styles and music is presented with recognizable blocks for those standard programming points during the day as through the bible in a year, Fred Passmore's Sheeps Laugh and the Old time radio shows.
