Unknown Powell-Malone Orchestrion Roll
By John McClure

In my search for rolls for my O-roll orchestrion I have turned up a roll
that I thought would play, but must be for some other configuration.

The box and roll are labeled "Automatic Music Roll Co., produced by
Powell-Malone Assoc., O-SP1972".  Tunes are 1. Raindrops keep Falling,
2. Tennessee Waltz, 3. Hello Dolly, etc. (9 tunes in all).

When I tried to fit it on my spool the center was smaller and the
arrangement definitely is not set up as my nickelodeon that plays
standard O-rolls is.  What is this for, and can anyone use it?
I prefer to trade for a usable O-roll.  Thanks.
