Today is the day that Roland's AIRA TR-8 has found its way into a music retail store near you. And coincidentally, today BBC Radio 4 have published a 5 minute programme charting the influence of the Roland TR-808 drum machine. Presenter Graham Massey (808 State) covers the special feel and personality inside the circuit board of this Roland classic.
The full programme can be found on the BBC site here:
