Week 119 – Guest Find – Dying Carousel

We have another great guest find this week. This one comes from Ned. This is what he wrote about the tape.

“I thought I would spread the joy of a recording my father did in the late 1970’s of our local zoo’s carousel, whose calliope had fallen into dreadful disrepair, making for some wonderfully warbled versions of Moon River, 76 Trombones, The Sound of Music and many others.

My father had gotten word that the Como Zoo carousel was going to be put out of service, so he ran along on one of the last days and politely asked the carny working if he could ride along for a day and record the calliope’s last moments.”
