    Hi, I was delighted to hear the Welte Concert Orchestrion on the air. This was from my 1991 CD. I am a restorer and collector of Welte orchestrions here in Baltimore. This Style #6 is now in a private collection in Boston. The St. #5 on the CD is still in my collection, as well as several smaller instruments. I have had the privilege of restoring fourteen of these organs over the years. It gives me great pleasure to bring these machines back to life and to keep them playing as they did over 100 years ago.

    Thank you!

    Durward,

    Glad you enjoyed it! I love the recording, and love to use it from time to time for a “change of pace” to the standard programming. Thanks again, and thanks for listening!
