I don't think Wurlitzer ever issued the kind of roll Bruce Miller is
looking for in the 125 or 150 format. But it did come close in roll
13232, a three-tune roll consisting of "La Golandrina" ("The Swallow"),
"Auld Lang Syne," and "Home Sweet Home." That roll was recut for Bill
Luca, and he may still have a copy.
A roll such as Bruce describes _was_ made for the 165 scale: roll 6510.
It was advertised as "Length of a five tune roll" and consists of one
long medley waltz, "Home Sweet Home." The tunes in the medley are
"Good Night Ladies," "We Won't Go Home Till Morning," "Auld Lang Syne,"
and "Then We'll Go Home."
A copy of 6510 was owned by Howard Walton who operated a Wurlitzer
165 band organ (now owned by the estate of Howard Winstead) at his
Plainville, Ohio, skating rink. Howard used to play the roll at
closing each night. It has been recut by Play-Rite, and we play it
at Seabreeze Park the weekend after Labor Day, when the park closes
for the season.
