Carousel Music Only During Rides or Continuous
By Matthew Caulfield
I received a question today from Andy Park asking about a stop lever
on Wurlitzer band organs. He mentioned that many carousel operators,
like Prospect Park, turn off their band organ between rides. I have
even heard that one East Coast carousel management requires the organ
to be silenced while the carousel is running "for safety reasons."
This seems preposterous.
My question here is: what carousels that you know of turn their organ
on and off during operating hours for whatever reason, and what ones
still operate the traditional way, like Glen Echo Park, keeping the
organ playing throughout the day?
