The following quote is from Dr. Demento, the "Pope of Novelty Music":
"Dear Jim, Thank you so much for sending your work to the Dr Demento Show.
The "hand music" and tire pump solos are fun, and I might be able to include one of them
in some future set devoted to unusual instruments.
Best regards,  Dr Demento" (dated 9/20/02)
By all means, keep an ear out for the Doctor as well as 103.3 WPRB-FM in Princeton, NJ,

The Biography of Manualist/Tire Pumpist Jim Rotondo
(aka Jimmy Pavaroddy)

Jim Rotondo was born in Philadelphia, PA many, many years ago and resided in Southern California from July 2, 1970 thru July 5, 1990. It was here that his gift of "manualism" was born, the unique ability to play songs by simply squeezing the palms of his hands together (that's "handfart" music to my Southern friends...). "Luciano" can also play songs by controlling the air flow from the nozzle of a bicycle tire pump (K-Mart Black, $9.99). The Maestro has performed in many comedy clubs, churches, retirement homes, prisons and TV Shows. Pavaroddy's musical comedy act can be 5, 7, 10, 15, 20, 30, and 45 minutes in length and can be customized for virtually any occasion or audience of any age. In December of 2000 Jim joined forces with "The Handman" Bruce Gaston, and World-Class Hand Whistler Ben Brenner to form "The Three Tendons". This trio appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on February 15, 2001. The rest is history -- cause herstory is too long.
