Winderzeuger, Maestro!

Tonto was a contestant in the World Organ Playing Championships in Klagenfurt Austria. My music, I thought was going to put me over the top. I had chosen Fürchtet euch nicht, siehe ich verkündige euch große Freude, by Dieterich Buxtehude. It turned out that my chief rival, Ernest Reginald McClintock Dix had attached helium canisters to the diaphone pipes, making the powerful bass groundtone sound more like a car alarm. Needless to say, I lost the competition. The good news is that Ernest now has had to commit to a grueling concert schedule, while I get to watch baseball games for free. All I have to do is play “Take Me Out to the Ballpark,’ during the seventh inning stretch, and the theme to The Addams Family a couple of times. People love their TV theme songs.
