CD "Whirling Melodies" DRK-2506
By Matthew Caulfield

The tune order shown on the CD "Whirling Melodies," made from the
Ontario Beach Stinson 165 band organ playing MIDI files of Wurlitzer
Style 165 rolls, is correct except for tunes 24, 25, 26, and 29.  That
CD was made by Dave Kaspersin's Dynamic Recording Studios in 2005 in
celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the Ontario Beach Dentzel
carousel on which the organ plays.

Tune 24 is, as Bill Kenny notes, "Aggravatin' Papa (Don't You Try To
Two-time Me)."  Tune 25 is "You Know You Belong To Somebody Else (So
Why Don't You Leave Me Alone)."  They seemed to love long tune titles
in 1923.

Tune 26 is "Barney Google."  Tune 29, shown as "Vienna Waltz," is
actually Johann Strauss' "Vienna Blood" ("Wiener Blut" in the original

Tune 4, "Rosy Cheeks," starts out much too fast, but at the 25-second
mark it slows down to the proper tempo.  The fault is not in the paper
roll, which we have, but in the MIDI file.
