Where Kazoos come from #MusicMonday #ManufacturingMonday

If you’re not too happy about it being Monday, NPR’s Karen Michel’s piece on Kazoos is sure to make your smile. We strongly recommend listening to the piece for the bonus Kazoo sounds.

Kazoos are the instrument everyone can play, practically no skill required — but only two places in the U.S. make them. The metal ones are made in western New York state, while the plastic ones hail from Beaufort, S.C. That’s the home of Kazoobie Kazoos, where President and CEO Stephen Murray presides like an elementary-school teacher, ready to share his knowledge of the kazoo’s broad influence in popular music.

You can find the full article with audio here.

Long live the Kazoo!
