Carousel Music Only During Rides or Continuous
By Rosemary West

Our Stinson band organ is played all of the time we are open.  Being
in the middle of a large area of the park, we count on the happy music
to attract customers.

We also have a number of customers who sit on our benches just to
listen or dance around with their kids enjoying the music.  We even had
one customer who donated money for the purchase of more rolls and have
a plaque on the fence on front of the organ thanking him personally.

The best news of all is that the city [Los Angeles] has given us money
to restore our North Tonawanda organ.  We'll send you an announcement
to let you know when to celebrate it coming back to life.
