‘14 Years Ago’ – Accordions on the Television, Linz - Austria

The following humorous article appeared 14 years ago on Accordions Worldwide, then known as ‘The Squeeze’, published on November 8th 1996…

ACCORDION ON THE TELEVISION
As heard on CNN Broadcast, 26th October

Joseph Kerschbaumer, a farmer from Linz in northern Austria, has found a new way of getting a better milk yield from his cows, by playing traditional Austrian folk music on his accordion!! He says by doing this he can get up to two more litres per cow, because they are stimulated milk is released a lot easier.

He says the cows enjoy most music, but the they have a preference for traditional Austrian polkas. He explains they get a glaze in their eyes, and become curious, and have fun.

Joseph's children are following in their father's footsteps. His six year old son Oliver practices his accordion to the pigs. They seem to find it fun also. It will be interesting to hear whether or not these pigs will produce better tasting pork!!

The announcer of this item even ended with the pun "The Sound of Mooosic!!"
