FS or Trade: Calliope Music Rolls
By Gene Calman

I received 16 music rolls with my 1926 Tangley CA-43 calliope.
On examination I find that they are all of the same music.  They
are "A 1 TR" rolls and have Barnum and Bailey's Favorite March,
The Billboard March, Bombasto March, Repasz Band March, The Chariot
Race March, and The Roxy March.

 [ Originally published as Clark Roll A-928, "Circus Echoes -
 [ All Double Length Songs".  -- Robbie

Why anyone would have 16 copies of these is beyond me.  There are only
six tunes on each roll because they are longer pieces.  Fifteen of
these rolls appear to be new old stock and were purchased in 1982 from
Play-Rite in San Mateo, Calif.  They all come in the original boxes and
appear to be in perfect condition but I haven't played them because my
machine isn't working yet.  The 16th roll is a 1952 roll.

I would like to trade for other rolls, or sell, barter, or any other
procedure which will help me solve this problem.  Please call me to
discuss anything.
