Memorex memories

I saw Fitzgerald at Wolf Trap in 1977 - someone yelled from the audience "It's Memorex" and she said "Testing" into the mic without missing a beat!
How Ella Fitzgerald's Glass-Shattering Memorex Campaign Revitalized Her Career

I went to D.C. for the first time travelling on an Amtrak pass - there was a tourist info booth I think in the railroad station that quickly set me up with info on how to get there and booked me a reasonably priced motel near it!!
