Biloxi Man Repairs Hurricane Ravaged Pianos

So many people lost so much after Katrina roared ashore. People had photographs, paintings and other personal items restored.

What about a damaged piano? Hundreds of pianos turned up atop debris piles around south Mississippi.

Bob McDonald says, "That's a shame." McDonald has been tuning and repairing pianos since 1967. His Biloxi garage is filled with pianos battered by Katrina's storm surge.

"I've repaired pianos that were under water" McDonald says.

Bob McDonald gets great satisfaction bringing pianos back to life. He says people get very attached to their pianos.

"To many people, a piano is like a member of the family" says McDonald.
