Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Wurlitzer 165
By John Haskey

I visited the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk today and shot a little video
on my digital camera of the Wurlitzer 165.  The organ is behind glass
and, where it previously spoke through narrow grills on either side of
the glass, now there are loudspeakers behind the grills.

Between the tunes you can hear the hiss of the audio noise floor if
you are close.  I guess this allows them fully control the volume of
the band organ.

The room is now freshly painted and on the other side of the carousel
another glassed-in booth is now prepared for the reinstallation of the
Ruth organ.

The video is on YouTube at
(Strangely, YouTube cut off the last few seconds of the video.)
