(back) Subject: Re:speakers From: Ronnymn <Ronnymn@aol.com> Date: Thu, 11 Dec 1997 08:02:35 EST   Any Eorg types that have tried "wireless" speaker systems?? It ocurred to me that they would be nice for dispersion or reverb effects and could be experimented with so easily. No concerns about all that wire etc. Would certainly be a wife pleaser. tks

The list guidelines clearly state that they are not to be posted to PipeChat. They are an extensive waste of badwidth. Please refrain from any posts or discussions on them.   The above prompt response to someone trying to do a favor (and it was't me) sends a bit of a chill through me. Could this not be accomplished thru periodic reminders? I think such messages do (perhaps have) driven contributors away. Particularly when signed as Co-owener. I used the word "prompt" cuz that's an important aspect of this ill feeling I have.

(back) Subject: Aeolian-Skinner Masters From: DM726@delphi.com Date: Thu, 11 Dec 1997 09:42:19 -0500 (EST)   The response to my posts were quite large, so I will post this to both lists.   The information I have, (and many of you might already know) id from Nelson Barden, a Boston organ builder and restorer. I will quote his message to me.   "I talked with David Knutson, just before he died, and he had a complete set of masters. So did RCA or Columbia, I don't know which. Of course, the OHS is well aware that a complete set would make an ideal CD (or two or ten), and I believe Bill Van Pelt has been trying to work out a deal for years to reissue them.   I don't think there are copyright issues at stake, but there is some question of who actually owns the tapesrights and could sign off on the project to make it legally possible. Also, the original tapes are in bad condition, mainly from rotten splices, and they would need extensive and expensive restoration work."  
(back) Subject: Gender Benders From: ManderUSA <ManderUSA@aol.com> Date: Thu, 11 Dec 1997 23:45:49 EST   In a message dated 97-12-09 02:35:30 EST, you write:   << I just grinned when I saw it and let it pass. Don't worry, it wasn't the first time the mistake had been made on these lists. >>   You're most understanding!! I had not intended all that to go out to the list, but while the PipOrg-L replies to the individual sender, that Pipechat list goes to all, and I forgot where I was. I am glad I did not say the sort of awful things I usually say! A new couple appeared at church a couple of Sundays ago - he being Jaimie, and she Travis. It's strange that at coffee hour, we had a discussion about androgynous names, and the fact that in parts of this country, certain names are generally male while in other places, they may be female.   << well, I won't tell you his first gender-coloured impressions of me via the list! >>   Oh wow! What a great chance for experiment. But I'd love to hear all about it!! And it would be great to try that on La Drury, but I am sure it is too late!!   This morning, the snow lay on the ground!!   All the best,   Malcolm in CT    
(back) Subject: Personal Message Apology From: ManderUSA <ManderUSA@aol.com> Date: Fri, 12 Dec 1997 00:59:28 EST   Dear Pipe Chatterers,   My apologies for hitting reply to a couple of recent letters, instead of addressing them to the senders, to whom they belonged, thus sending personal letters to the list - twice even! Thank goodness I was on my best behavior (yes, that was it).   I blame excessive shoveling this morning.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com  
(back) Subject: Re: re:unit organs From: "Jim Saenger" <chamade@Early.COM> Date: Fri, 12 Dec 97 01:43:42 PST   Of course, Hope -Jones unit organs were developed with electrical action. Many builders made and make all-electric or electro-pneumatic or pneumatic unit/multiplex/extension organs. I just wondered if anyone on this list had seen, played or otherwise heard of the ancient mechanical unit organ in Innsbruck. I don't know whether it has slider or spring chests, but suspect sliders, especially since I understand that it is very small.   ---------- > Jim Saenger asks about a mechanical action organ..this is not a unit > organ.
