John wishes you a Happy New Year

On New Year's Eve tradition here at John's Island requires opening up this antique cylinder music box and playing a few cycles of Auld Lang Syne.  We thought we should share it this year with our loyal followers and friends. The cylinder produces music by turning slowly and tiny metal picks click musical pins. Pretty amazing, actually. Enjoy, and Happy New Year from John's Island.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. HAPPY NEW YEAR! ALL the BEST for you and your loved ones! :)

  2. Love the music box. I think that sound is perfect for the song. Happy New Year! :-0

  3. Happy New Year to you and those you love.

  4. Hi John, your antique cylinder music box is delightful and absolutely beautiful. How nice of you to share its wonderful music with us.

    Thanks, it made me smile awhile :)

    Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy new year.
