Let's cruise off topic for an interesting New York Times article about the demise of used pianos. As their values have plummeted in recent years, owners are more likely to dump 'em than donate them. And many are also dying of old age, those that survived the golden age of American piano-making from 1900 to 1930. Interesting stories. And for a bit of appropriate musical accompaniment, here's Jerry Lee Lewis singing on the subject. Video clip from 1976, from the television series Pop Goes The Country. Song written by singer-songwriter Ray Griff, who had over 700 (!) songs turned into recordings.
