These tasks should not be completed whilst the projector is running, and at least 30 minutes after use, to allow for the bulb to cool.

Born in 1948 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Lee Oskar grew up in a time where everyone played a harmonica. Determined to forge a career playing his instrument, at 18 he moved to and worked the streets of New York. Making his way to Los Angeles, he met the British blues-rock singer Eric Burdon who had recently disbanded “The Animals”.
