end of an era

I am sort of surprised it hadn't ended sooner... Sadly

The last new-issue piano roll that went off the assembly line Dec. 31 was the company’s 11,060th. The song was “Spring is Here,” by Rodgers and Hart, recorded by Buffalo-based pianist Michael T. Jones.

Dear WTB,
I heard this news via Collaborative Piano, and I just have to say this is some of the saddest news I've heard in a long time.
Apt song I suppose, as it actually feels wintry again here in Toronto!?
Thanks for the info.
