T.R.T. Caliola Rolls Played at Glen Echo Park
By Carl Zwanzig

Recently I came across some old tapes that I'd made of the Wurlitzer
165 at Glen Echo Park in Glen Echo, Maryland, back when it played
Caliola rolls (c. 1977).  Unfortunately, I don't seem to have the
tune lists that went with the tapes.

I'm looking for listings for T.R.T. rolls 6115, 6122, 6121, 6052,
and 6221.  I recall these were the most commonly played of the 9-ish
Caliola rolls that the park had at the time (most of others had major
tracking problems).  I'm also looking for lists of some of the other
T.R.T. Caliola rolls.

Side note: are there any other recordings of rolls from that vintage?
I remember that some of the arrangements on the T.R.T. rolls were
fantastic (their versions of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and
"Zip-a-dee-doo-dah" come to mind).
