This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

Did you know that...

... there are/were billionaire noseflutists who run/ran for President of the United States ? Unfortunately, at this time, YouTube didn't exist yet...

From the Aiken Standard, 12/27/1992, in 1992 Year in Review by Dave Barry :


  1. David Letterman had a comedian called Larry "Bud" Melman (1921-1998) on the show as a regular who did all sorts of parodies on people in the spotlight at the time.

    Check out this 'Ross Perot', who probably did the nose flute part as well:

  2. Thank you maikel! Well, I had already checked all the videos on Youtube that could have include the nose flute show by Perot ... with no success.

    All the best!


  3. I would love to see that!!! Surely it is in the archives of the David Letterman show? You have a good nose for sniffing out great stories and videos. That would be a scoop for your blog.....

  4. Oh yes, it would be great :) But if the sequence is in the D. Letterman archives, I'm not sure they would let me take a copy and push it on my blog for free :)
    hahaha, it would be great, however :)
