Take a listen to this short MIDI clip of a recreated tune from a Wurlitzer 153 Band
Organ roll. The orchestration is just made up for effect, but the melody is correct.
All the experts are stumped, so email if you have any clue as to what it may be.

This tune was often heard into the late 1960’s from the Wurlitzer Band Organ on the
carousel at Palace Amusements in Asbury Park, NJ. The instrument was then sold to
a private collector, restored, and put on display at Stone Mountain, GA. A few years
ago it was auctioned off to an unknown buyer, who we have been unable to track down.
If you have any information at all, please email. Thanks!
