Organ Music, unknown date

December 22, 2011

Unless you’re a die-hard fan of old-time organ music (as my grandfather apparently was), you might want to skip this one. Unless you’re suffering from insomnia, in which case they may be invaluable. These are two sides of one record that my grandfather labeled “Organ.” I’ve listened through this enough to make sure there are no skips or anything, but I have not been able to make myself sit through the whole thing to get the order of songs and all that. The first side is a Columbia overnight broadcast of Dean Faussner and Anita Carroll (not sure of the spelling on either of those). The other side which he labeled “Rumba”  is obviously something that he put together himself.

I don’t know which of these songs are on which side, but here’s what my grandfather’s notes had: “Later Tonite,” “Stormy Weather,” “Poinciana,” “Stardust,” “Rumba Rumba,” “Memory Lane,” “Mr. Pollyanna,” “Love Old Sweet Song,” and “Cuddle Up a Little Closer.”
