In my amateurish attempt to play the calliope, I decided to emulate, I think it was Doc, in a rendition of Tuck Me Away In My Old Kentucky Home, which is one of my favorites. This was pretty easy to copy, but I never tried it on the real thing. Occasionally I was pressed, or pressured, into service as a calliope player, but that was a last resort sort of thing, like when all the real musicians were otherwisely occupied or asleep, and, "oh my goodness, there are three people on that lock wall, go play them a couple of tunes."
