    Research this and you will be surprised and amazed .

    I had not heard of this, it's interesting. The first thing I find impressive is that the process was developed by a couple of prisoners of war at Changi Jail.

    So. Two people, A and B, who may be at different locations by miles. B is under close observation and definitely can't communicate back to A. B has to announce a message and it has to match the message which has been provided by person C to A moments earlier.

    So.

    A definitely has to provide B with the answer, or B won't be able to announce it.

    A can either do this days before, or during the run up to the announcement after they've been separated. The first requires no unrecognised channel, the second needs one.

    If A conveys the message days before then A needs to plant the message on the person C who selects it on the day. C believes herself to be the author of the message, because the feat is performed many times over the years and not all C can be stooges.

    Re: What are you listening to right now

    So we have the following two statements, at least one of which is true.

    Either C can be fooled into choosing a message which A has already agreed.

    Or B can get the message from A in the immediate run-up to announcing it.

    Or, pointlessly, both.

    The fact that A is always on air with an entertainment broadcast unit suggests that, if B can detect the broadcast, that's an adequate channel for the message to be passed. The performance is always given live, just as it was in Changi Jail.

    But I suspect it's more likely that A talks C into selecting the particular pre-arranged message.

    I can't think of a third alternative.

    Your posts remind me of the lectures in my Degree Ancillary course in Logic .
    Happy and unhappy days . Headaches . But well done !!

    The few commentaries I have scanned suggest that Mrs P ( Frances? ) plays no part in the 'magic' other than being a deflector and vehicle for what is effectively the punch line .
    This means that the person working with Mr P is the technician or link announcer ,
    But I still cannot work out their system .

    Or even get within a hundred miles of it .

    Allegedly the solution is known within the Magic Circle but that hardly helps my protesting brain .

    It's just one of those days, apparently. Bruv would have liked it.

    A nice band called Lake Street Dive featuring all accomplished musicians, but mainly Rachael Price as lead vocalist. She does all sorts of genres. She's one of my favorites to listen to. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqEi...5dd_9g&index=2

    Nice.
    A quick search turned up some more of their work.
    I am finding this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnFZO7eZfp0 very interesting.

    Thanks for sharing these guys.
