Howard Levy Harmonicas script
Saturday, May 13, 2006

Garrison Keillor: ...a word from Howard Levy International Harmonica Corporation......makers of the Self-Chording Harmonica for people who want to play right away without the expense and inconvenience of lessons. Now, if you were going to choose one instrument from the hundreds available --- piano, guitar, saxophone, viola, trombone, or marimba ---- harmonica would have to be your first choice. It's the orchestra in your pocket. (BLUE DANUBE).......anywhere you go, your Howard Levy self-chording harmonica goes with you ----- the harmonica anyone can play ---- you blow one note and the harmonica does the rest ---- (BLUE MOON)...... how does it work? Flashing lights show you which notes to blow and you wear dark glasses with filters that enable you to see the flashing lights. It's that simple. Even if you've never played music before in your life, you'll be doing "Begin The Beguine" (BEGUINE), Blue Moon, Blue Danube, or the Beethoven Violin Concerto (BEETHOVEN)........on the Howard Levy Self-Chording Harmonica. Get Yours Today. (BOOGIE)
