I will pay up to $25 / set for shipping ($225 / set). Let me know.   Thanks,   Greg   GHamil9709@aol.com wrote:   > In a message dated 97-11-20 08:36:15 EST, you write: > > > I've been looking for them also.

Yes!! The Radio City Music Hall Wurlitzer is alive and well!!   Recently renovated relays and console to boot. I heard it last August during the Music Hall's summer classic film festival. It sounded as good as always.   Enjoy the show!!   Greg   PipeLuvr@aol.com wrote:   > Hi Lists: > > I will be viewing the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular next > Wednesday afternoon and was curious if the 4/58 Wurlitzer is being used in > the program or for overtures or intermissions?

(back) Subject: LARRY FERRARI HAS DIED From: kwkeller@juno.com (KARL W KELLER) Date: Thu, 20 Nov 1997 12:34:12 EST   Channel 6 ( Philadelphia ) has just announced that Larry Ferrari, a well known organist in the Delaware Valley area, lost his fight with cancer. Larry was 65. In 1953 he was discovered by Channel 6 playing the organ at Fort Dix, NJ while in the Army. Larry was discharged in 1954 and was hired by Channel 6 to play the organ on TV. He had a long standing program of organ music which was televised on Sunday mornings for over 40 years. Larry has recorded 20 albums of organ music - pipe and electronic. When the Kimball pipe organ was donated to the Dickinson High School in Wilmington, Delaware Larry played the farewell concert at the Boyd Theater in Philadelphia. When the organ was re-installed in the school, Larry gave the first public concert on the then 3/19 Kimball. Larry has given several concerts at Dickinson all of which attracted large audiences. We members of DTOS will miss him as will the many friends Larry had the world over.   When funeral arrangements are announced I will post further.   Karl Musica est Dei donum optimi

From: Robert Ehrhardt <ehr@softdisk.com> Date: Thu, 20 Nov 1997 17:57:20 -2   Had to pass this this along - 'tis the season.   Alternate texts for Handel's "Messiah"   Thus saith the Lord, the Lord of Toast: "Yet once a little while, and I will bake the breads and dessert, whole wheat and the rye-bread; all bagels, I'll bake, with the desire of all noshers for some. The chef whom ye seek shall certainly send you a sample, evn by messenger with an oven mitt (which ye fit right in); Behold! Even buns!" saith the Lord of Toast.   But who may abide the bray of his strumming, and who shall stand when he premiereth? For he has liked to get minors sired.   For he shall surely buy, For he shall surely buy,--a ton of Levis; That he may offer unto the horde an offering of "righteous" dress.   Behold! A sturgeon shall bite Steve, and take his gun, and shall hold a flame to Samuel. Cod with us.   O thou, that sellest good siding to Brian, Get thee up unto the accountants...   There were shepherds, imbibing in the fields, drinking scotch over the rocks by night. And lo! the urge to smorgasbord came upon them and a glorious aroma round about them; they thought they had it made. But the waiter said unto them, "Here? Not! for behold, were out of smoked salmon and cream cheese. Take your spree to those people: For you will find across the way, in the Cafe' of David, A flavor which is spiced--galore!"   His yolk is over easy, his breakfast is "lite."   All we, asleep, still have to play; we have yearned, every one for his own pay.   Thou art gone onstage high, thou art gone onstage high! Thou hast held the Cabernet captive, and enough gin for ten, Yea, even for thine enemas! Front row, poor sods, thou fell among them!   Thou shalt fake them with their rotten high runs, Thou shalt thrash them, those pieces, while thy daughters wrestle.   The Lord saved the herd: Great was the humping among the creatures.   How beautiful is the seat of him that teaches the sophomores in Greece, And fits so tightly in good jeans...   Since by van came Beth, by van came also the headboard section of the bed. But has she had some more pie? Even just one slice, with all that stuff inside!   The crumpet shall brown, and the bread shall be raised--it smells wonderful!   Oh Beth, where is thy thing? Oh Dave, where is thy d*ck for me? The thing of Beth is thin, and the length of his is quite long.   But thanks, thanks be to Todd, Who playeth us the timpani through our long winter nights.   Honolulu! For I would rather be on vacation! The thing about this world is the sun; Get me a seat on board tomorrows flight, tomorrows flight, And catch those rays for ever and ever. Fling of flings, and scores of whores, Honolulu!       --compiled by G.T. for the December 1993 _Philharmonia Baroque Musician_, the newsletter of Philharmonia Baroque players.
