Seek "March of the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben"
By Edward Weirich

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --

Gentlemen; I would like to find a copy of a piano roll that was in my
home when I was a little guy, about 55 years ago.  I do not know the
company nor the artist, only am sure of the title.  I wrote to John
Tuttle and he suggested that I should write to you as there are some
1100 members and perhaps one of them may have an extra copy or know
where or how this could be had.

The title of the roll was "March of the Knights of AK-SAR-BEN".
Don't remember if it was a word roll but I thought the melody was very
nice, one of those kind that would go through your head for days after
hearing it.  I went on the Internet and found that the Knights of
Aksarben was and still is a real organization.  Do not know if they
were involved in the production of the roll.

Any feedback from your members would be most appreciated.  Thank you
for your time.

Edward Weirich
