Modern Songs for 1900 Player Organ
By Philip Jamison

Almost any noteur can arrange rolls for a player organ.  It's expensive,
however!  Tom Meijer of The Netherlands did a nice arrangement of
"Victory at Sea" by Richard Rodgers for Mike Kitner's Orchestrelle.
Mike made about 20 copies and sold them at $60 each to cover the cost.
I'm sure Wayne Holton in Texas could also do a good job (and perhaps
cut the roll as well -- I think he has Mike's old perforator).  If you
do get any new songs done, let me know!
