Carousel Organ at Pacific Ocean Park CA
By Dan Robinson

Hello;  In an old 1990 Carousel News & Trader magazine, there is an
ad for "Pacific Ocean Park (Venice, CA) Wurlitzer Band Organ Cassette"
for sale from Carol Pease, Los Angeles, CA.  My written inquiry to the
address did not get a reply.

I believe I remember reading somewhere that this organ was a Wurlitzer
165, but I am not sure.  A web site shows that Pacific Ocean Park had
a large Looff carousel, presumably with the Wurlitzer organ, until the
park closed in 1967.

Does anyone have a copy of this old cassette, or know what happened to
the organ (assuming it was a 165)?
