I was just listening to Sugar in the Gourd and heard this song... Frank Luther & His Pards - Barbara Allen, Recorded In 1928. You can hear it here:

Pretty sure it must have been Harmonica. He quite clearly suffered from various concertina ergonomic/physio issues....

Barber a alien?
As in... ET needs a haircut?

I, too, think it's a harmonica.

TV presenters orientating themselves before gamma rays hit from nucelar blast which will strip off their lingerey, so problematizing* their preventative attempts at adaption to the crisis. But fear not, the Queen has been coronated and all will be well for those who comprise of her nation:rolleyes:
