    Takes me back to the good old days in 1935... Just kidding! I was born in the 20th century, thankfully! Great sound!

    My goodness! Your wonderful sample sounds exactly like the old merry-go-round at Coney Island in New York. I'd swear that's what it was or maybe Buckroe Beach in Virginia. I spend lots of time on them as a kid in the 1950s. Thanks!
