Unknown Tune by Frank Milne on Ampico Roll
By Mike Walter

Hi all,  Some time between 1936 and 1941, Frank Milne, who was working
for Aeolian-American Corp., was working on a little ditty that was
never issued.  Attached is a link to YouTube where you may listen to
the full song.  If you can identify the song, I am certain that you
will make a number of people very happy!

Good luck and best wishes,

Mike Walter
Buffalo, New York

 [ Mike's link to YouTube didn't accompany his message, but I believe
 [ I found the unknown piano roll at Doug Miller's site, "Ampplay1".
 [ Listen to it at  and
 [ compare with Milne's composition "Whisper a Lovely Melody" at
 [  (last tune, at 10:57).
 [ Then enjoy more of Doug Miller's Ampico piano music in the playlist
