QRS Roll 21010 - Ziegfeld Follies of 1915
By Rob DeLand

Joyce,  I don't have a copy of this roll [Ref MMD 990923], but I have
a copy of the 1918 QRS catalog which includes "Standard Rolls" such as
this.  It states the following:

QRS 21010  Ziegfeld Follies of 1915 - Selection ... Hirsch
 1- Hold Me in Your Loving Arms;
 2- A Girl for Each Month in the Year;
 3- Hello Frisco;
 4- I'm a Nurse for Aching Hearts;
 5- Marie Odile

I can't explain your "10 tunes" unless they repeated some or all of the
above; I've seen the first tune repeated on a medley roll like this but
not all 5.  Several other medley rolls in the catalog before & after
this one also have just 4 or 5 tunes.
