Those instruments are hard to build and require careful storage. It's expensive to tune them.

Agree with Hack - there are some genres of music that sound great on the squashbox.

I once had a whim, and I had to obey it, to buy a French Horn in a second hand shop...

Never leave an accordian unattended, lock those doors. Otherwise some one will see it, open the door and leave you another one.

One wonders what they will do with 30 of 'em?

// Hot!

Did a GIS for Schmenge, best image I found was a link on FARK from a 2009 thread about stolen accordions:

If you have trouble with your primary target, your secondary targets are here and here; an accordion factory and a mine school.

Dolly Parton started out as an accordianist.

Scottish D-Day bagpiper dies. Family devastated. Neighbors relieved

At least the accordionist didn't have to die to shut up the noise.

/one of my favorites because it was about Piper Bill who went ashore very early on D-Day, piping in combat, unarmed.

Mama's got a squeeze box
She wears on her chest
And when Daddy comes home
He never gets no rest
'Cause she's playing all night
And the music's all right
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night
