Default PRESIDENT'S calliope

This was mentioned in the ADMIRAL calliope thread, so let's give it a thread of its own. Pictured is the PREZ' calliope in 1991, in her career as a gambling boat. As you can see, the calliope was moved to the stern, overhanging the fourth deck outdoor area. Kim Graham rebuilt it, gave it autoplaying capability. Dan Forman of the MQ made the tape while the MQ was at a shore stop in Davenport. This tape was played briefly upon departure and occasionally on the landing approach. That's the Centennial Bridge in the background.
