Issue 76: Top Gear and Musical Roads

I was just settling down to get this week’s issue of the jungle up, when I heard the Top Gear presenters start talking about  “Musical Roads”

It was he work of a moment to search on Google, and, yes, not only is there one for real in the USA (I heard it playing an approximation to the “William Tell Overture” as they drove along) there are others in three other countries; Japan, South Korea and Denmark. Here’s the link to the wikipedia article:

The image above comes from the sound tourism website http://www.sonicwonders.org/?p=1165 where you will also find video recordings of the different roads. Amazing. What will they think of next?
