MIDI users seeking more tunes might like to take a look at Wallace Venable's web page, where he advises that he has edited over 50 tunes scanned from Wurlitzer 125 and 150 scale rolls to support the MIDI interface.
He has kindly offered to share his work, saying 'Feel free to play or punch them on your own organ, but do not distribute them to others'.

Hi, I found your interesting website and wonder if you can perhaps help me with some history regarding my ancestors. In the mid 1880s my ancestors came to the uk. The family name is Cascarino and in the censuses they have put occupation as musician or Organ grinder. They lived mostly in Cheltenham where in 1900 two daughters, born in uk, were fined 1s 3d each for continuing to play in the street when asked to stop playing. In particular I’m interested to know what type of organ they may have h

Further to my post on Mechanical Music Chat, do any other members want to join in and play a tune at 8:00 on Thursday night as our tribute toappreciation of nhs and key workers? If we could all do it together it would be a nice gesture. How about "Calling All Workers"?

I do have a number of parts available, including a ready made and tested full tracker bar assembly with tubing for a Universal.. Various size plastic tubings, heavy duty blackout cloth for busker and Senior bellows. ring me 01525 712496 john Smith

Russells can supply the leather needed for all my organ designs, unless things have changed they know exactly what to supply for each model. Soft sheep is probably the nicest to use two skins will bee needed unless they are from a very big sheep !! I and a couple of others have successfully used soft upholstery leather, manufacturers discard quite large offcuts, or one man simply bought a tatty sofa from a charity shop and cut the back out making a perfect set of bellows for his topsy.
