    Sorry Steve, we did have Tonettes here in MN – Where I grew up you had to take tonette lessons/classes before you could pick an instrument and get into the highschool band.
    By the way, I flunked tonettes – It has always been a family joke (especially with my mother) that I flunked but then was in two very successful rock bands.

    Well….*we* had fluteaphones in Bloomington schools (http://goo.gl/xqabn) and I’ve heard that this is why we had such a superior education and never flunked anyone out of the class. Later I heard it was because the administration feared someone who flunked out would go on to be in a successful rock band. ;-)

    Probably why there were never any good rock bands from Bloomington – Nor any good music venues ;-)

    Do you still have your Fluteaphone? I think I still have my Tonette – Probably still can’t play it.

    “Do you still have your Fluteaphone?” Of course. You mean you haven’t seen me in “The Fluteaphone Jazz All-Stars” at the Dakota?

    Seriously though, the things were such cheap plastic they usually didn’t make it home when school was done.
