A Call for Squeezebox Supremacy

A clear-headed reader wrote a letter to The Capital Times in Madison, Wis., calling for the squeezebox to be given its due in the Dairy State.

"Isn't it time for the fabulous piano accordion to be written into law as Wisconsin's official state musical instrument?" wrote Donald McDermott. "Music lovers everywhere unite! Please support this cause! Long live the accordion!"

Hear, hear, Mr. McDermott! And when you're ready for a new state song, we've got this little ditty about "The First Bratwurst of Summer" all revved up and ready to go ...

P.S. Some of TDA's founders helped get the piano accordion named the official instrument of San Francisco way back in 1990. Now it's Wisconsin's turn!
