Seek Titles for Wurlitzer APP Rolls
By Jack M. Conway

Hi Group,  This summer I have been trying to get all of my Wurlitzer
Automatic Player Piano rolls identified and labeled.  I had reprinted
many labels from original Wurlitzer labels a year or so ago.  It has
turned out that most of the reprints are not for rolls that I own and
that many that I do own I have little or no information for.

I am asking your help in completing this project.  The following rolls
have been played through to the end to find the end roll pencil number
but I have no titles for them.  If you own the roll or have roll catalog
information for it I would like to have a Xerox copy of the label or
catalog information.

The roll numbers are: 071, 180, 213, 305, 644, 750, 808, 893, 1038, 1059,
1060, 1111, 1573, 1603, 1730, 1731, 1822, 1836, 1839, 2575, and 2666.

For the following rolls I have partial information.  Can you complete it
for me?

  1097: 1. How You Gonna Keep 'em Down on the Farm?, 2-4?.
  1118: 1. Hindustan, 2. ?, 3. I'm Always Chasing Rainbows, 4. General
        Pershing March, 5. Till We Meet Again.
  1411: 1. Ain't We Got Fun, 2-4?
  1420: 1. ?, 2. Whispering, 3-5?
  1845: 1. Collegiate, 2-4?
  1956: 1. Valencia, 2. Always, 3. ?What Do I Say After I Say I'm Sorry?
 20798 (ten-tune): tunes 6-10?
  ---- (no roll number, A): 1. Star Spangled Banner, 2. Columbia Gem of
        the Ocean, 3. Battle Hymn of the Republic, 4. Hail Columbia,
        5. America and America.
  ---6 (partial number): 1. Silver Threads Among the Gold, 2. Listen to
        the Mocking Bird, 3. Old Black Joe, 4. Massa's in the Cold Ground,
        5. Dixie Land.

If you need information I can check my rolls for you.

I have the following reprint labels available: 0103, 246, 266, 0327-0340,
0342-0360, 0392, 0395, 410, 620, 667, 821, 1014, 1173, 1266, 1606.

Thanks for the help.
