Interesting. I have always associated this piece with the cinema organ - where someone turns the blower off at the appropriate point - with the desired effect of course.

...and I have always associated it with Looney Tunes, and the Carl Stalling arrangement that introduced each of those magnificent efforts during the Termite Terrace era.

Same here, Bob - and especially, because of the era, with The Pig!

I was scratching and bashing my bonce in an endeavour to remember who the horganist was who did this on a 78 I had (Don't ask me where it is at the moment) - and it has just come back to me. It was Sidney Torch. I don't know if it is on You Tube (everything else seems to be there).
