List of Piano Rolls Played By Hi Babit
By Brian Meeder

Hi Robbie, Here is a list of Hi Babit's rolls made for QRS, Aeolian
and Melodee.  The only Hi Babit rolls which I don't have record of are
a few Aeolian brand (between numbers 1993-2071), but the rest of this
listing is complete to my knowledge.
