This morning it featured a house of William K. Vanderbilt, Eagle's Nest, = on Long Island. Featured was his Aeolian Pipe Organ with a Duo-Art. Shown was the console, a beautiful two manual architectural-style, with roll-player, while pipe organ music played in accompaniment. Reading Rollin Smith's = book, it is Opus 1598, with Duo-Art and Concertola, a multi-roll automatic changer. Do any of y'all watch this program to see the organs that were = installed in these homes? I have F. W. Gehring's Aeolian Pipe Organ, Opus 1228, from Cleveland Mr. Berley Antoine Firmin II Bayou La Combe, Louisiana
