Here’s the kind of LOUIE LOUIE I really love. It’s a wonderful demonstration of robotic technology and musical diversity.
Someone built and programmed a Lego Robot to perform LOUIE LOUIE on a ukelele for a Western Washington University robot competition.
Thank you Lego Robot on Ukelele – you are this week’s LOUIE of [...]
On Sunday night in California, Monday afternoon in Australia, a very special interview took place for the LOUIE documentary project.
For years, I’ve been in touch with Ross Wilson. I knew about his history with him being one of, if not THE first musician in Australia to record Richard Berry‘s now-iconic melody. [...]
