Ahh, these bring back memories for me. The cart machine is an ITC "Delta III", which was introduced during my years in Bloomington (and post-KAAY). The audio console is very similar to the ones I installed in the new KAAY building on Cottondale Lane when we built the new building.
Thanks for the memories!! /DM/
