Every night Bossy suffers a long commute home from work, which begins at 5:01 pm and goes until late-thirty.

Which is why Bossy is always delighted when she finds something distracting on her radio. And tonight that distraction was Nina Totenberg doing a piece on NPR about the new Kennedy Center Pipe Organ.

You see, according to Nina Totenberg, every night for the past three months while the Kennedy Center sleeps, two men enter.

And one of those men would sit at the organ, while the other would go inside.

“The organ looks big,” narrates Nina Totenberg. “But you have no idea how big.”

The two men assigned to the organ work side by side. One sits on the organ while the other goes in and around the organ, opening and closing its holes and moving the pipe around.

“The two men switch off roles from time to time” says Nina of the Nina Totenbergs. “If you just stay at the organ, it’s too easy to fall asleep.”
