Do you know what this song is? It was recorded from the Stinson Organ at the Griffith Park Carousel. Thanks!

Sounds like a Sousa march to me but not sure which one.

I don't know, but I know where you can find it. It plays the Wurlitzer 165 rolls, and all the songs on it except a few are cataloged here.

I've found it's listed as "Golden Gate" by Edwin Franko Goldman on the paper roll. Unfortunately that doesn't mesh with modern recordings of that song!
