Philadelphia's history of musical instrument making

If you're a local and like history, you might want to tune into Antiques Roadshow next Monday night to pick up some music-related trivia:

Antiques Roadshow "Philadelphia"
Monday, January 29 at 8 p.m. on WHYY TV (Channel 12)

The Roadshow's visit to the City of Brotherly Love continues as host Mark Walberg stops by the Philadelphia shop and museum of appraiser Fred Oster to view his impressive collection of instruments and learn more about the city's long history as a center for musical instrument makers. Back at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, more than 70 experts orchestrate a symphony of appraisals, including an Alexander Calder maquette (scale model) for a large sculpture commissioned for the 1958 Brussels Worlds Fair; a stunning collection of Camera Work magazines; and a rare handcrafted chair by master Arts and Crafts furniture maker Charles Rohlf.
