    I've seen that Radio Six mandola before, but that closeup of the body made me want to bend over and say something like "Hurrah" without the "H". Whoever made that was committing an act of covert hostility.

    This one belongs to a Cafe member. Label is Pook 1908 Winnipeg. Reminds me of Dr. Suess.
