Songs You Never Want to Hear Again
By Bruce Clark

For one thing I never want to hear Rap again, any of it!  Ever!
Thinking back, I remember my first player piano.  I was about 10 years
old, and I had two favorite rolls: "Springtime In The Rockies", and
"In a Little Spanish Town".

After the 300th play my mother said to me: "If I ever hear In a
Little Spanish Town or Springtime in the Rockies again, you will
never see those rolls again."

Well, eventually I played them again, and the rolls disappeared.  They
surfaced many years later when we moved from that home to another.
They were hidden behind a large piece of furniture. I was happy to find
them, but knew enough never to play them again; at least when mom was
at home.  I kept those roll for 40 some years, and eventually gave them
to a player piano enthusiast who is still enjoying them!
