The exact date of this episode is unknown. We've filled in the date above with a placeholder. What we actually have on record is: 195u-uu-uu.

This episode is from the WNYC archives. It may contain language which is no longer politically or socially appropriate.

Mr. Narrator, Patrolman Diamond, Patrolman Dixon, and Patrolman Southwick show how music played on the piano is like safety.

The tune of "A Bicycle Built for Two" is turned in to a song about looking both ways before you cross the street.
