10 I remember this as if it were yesterday. You'd sit through the whole programme waiting to see if your personal favourite would be played. Music still ringing in my ear to this day are 'Peter and the Wolf', 'Ugly Duckling', Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer', 'She'll be coming round the mountain', 'The Runaway Train', 'Teddy Bear's Picnic' 'Nellie the Elephant', 'A windmill in Old Amsterdam', 'Sparky the magic Piano' and my favourite...'Tubby the Tuba'!

The man who operated New York State’s “Old Sparky” was calm, collected and always professional. No one knew that every flick of the switch was tearing him apart.
