Why A Musical California Road Sounds Terrible

If you’re going to take the time and energy to plan out a highway to play music as people drive along it, you should do it correctly, right? Well a stretch of road in Lancaster, California plays classical music as you drive over it but there’s one problem…it’s out of tune and therefore sounds terrible.

YouTuber, Tom Scott, explains that basically the engineers did the math wrong and put the grooves in the wrong places. Take a listen to the song as he drives over it and see if you can recognize it. And hear his whole explanation at PowerNationTV.com

This week on PowerNation Katie welcomes hot rod builder Steve Legens of Legens Hot Rod Shop in Martin, Tennessee. And with him a gorgeous 1960 Ford truck! One very interesting change Steve’s team made to the pickup was to the side trim; Ford never ran it down the entire side, but now that long strip of chrome trim looks fantastic. They dropped in a Coyote engine with a Borla fuel injection making about 510 horsepower. The Schott Wheels are a nice touch. There’s no missing the custom PPG red paint they call “Cardinal Red” because owner Jeff Perkins is a huge Cardinal’s fan! Inside distressed Pecan color leather seats and a Tan interior, plus with stock gauges give the truck that vintage look. One beautifully restored truck inside and out, front to back. Check it out this week on PowerNation.
