Coming into work today, I was listening to Second Cup on WPBA on the radio. And they played a piece for the glass harmonica. I've never heard of such an instrument. At first I guessed it was a harmonica (harp) made out of glass. But that's not what it is at all. It's more of a instrumental version of rubbing your fingers on top of wine glasses. Interestingly, it was invented by Benjamin Franklin.
