And don't forget that the planet Uranus was discovered by an organist, Sir William Herschel (1738-1832), organist of the Octagon Chapel, Bath, in 1782.   John.

(back) Subject: Re: Old Music Books From: dmjd <jimdave@rnet.com> Date: Thu, 02 Oct 1997 11:16:16 -0500   Dear Vernon:   I too, have had the problem with old books falling apart, etc. I purchased an IBICO comb binder and am binding my books. The maching wasn't too expensive. I got it from Viking, the mail order house for office supplies. The machine can be bought at Staples and other office supply stores, and the price is going down. The combs come in various sizes. Initially, I took my books to a printer who cut off the old binding, but eventually I bought a good paper cutter which does the job fine. I have found that I use this machine for more than ever I expected, from cookbooks to church reports. In convenience and frustration-evasion, it has more than paid for itself. The pages lie flat, and if a page does get torn out (as happened with an over-zealous page turner) I repaired the page with tape, repunched it and reinserted it.   I hope it works for you. And, no, I do not represent the company or any office supply house! :-)   Sincerely, Jim Donovan -- email: jimdave@rnet.com Rainbow Ridge Farm

If anyone is interested in paying the freight and packing on these tubes, they can have them. Of course, they can come and retrieve them in person too, and save that expense.   Let me know of your interest before they're going, going, gone!   Richard Schneider, President SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

I assume this was heard on a recording. Any information would be welcome.   Thank you.   Dan Miller Organist John Calvin Presbyterian Church Annandale, VA    
(back) Subject: Re:Insulating, sound proofing paint From: MFulk70776@aol.com Date: Thu, 2 Oct 1997 14:36:19 -0400 (EDT)   In a message dated 97-09-29 16:17:59 EDT, you write:   << There is also an insulating/sound proofing paint which was developed in the space program. It is a ceramic based paint which insulates, sound and fire proofs. The demonstration uses a 3x5 card which is painted on one side with the pain, and then held paint side down over a cigarette lighter. There is no heat transmitted through the card. The stuff is amazing. It comes in all colors, can be custom mixed, etc. I believe the manufacturer is Pueblo and that somehow Benjamin Moore is involved. Painting your interior walls with this would go far in soundproofing as well as improving acoustics. >>

(YA RIGHT!)   I believe any organ that has a "Watertfall" console, a googleplex of traps, treumants for everything, and A LOT OF REEDS! is concidered a Theatre organ.   If any one on the list knows what happened to the organ isn the "Organ Grinder Pizza Parlor" in Denver, CO, Please let me know ASAP. If you don't know which one, If there are more(?), This place closed down about 6-10 years ago. It was at 2370 W. Alameda. They had a four manual Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ. Jones Nordwall, and Pattie Simon played it. I know Pattie Simon was a regular.   Well, You have my opinion, and a question. If you'll please answer my question, (Y or N)   Thanks in advance,   Jason Comet Krummhorn8@juno.com |\ | \ O

Back in the 50's I was organist at a large = English town church that had a tiny clapped-out one manual PO. At the = time Electronic organs were just beginning to appear in the shops (valve = jobs of course), so the Church Council decided to purchase the latest = Compton (cannot remember it's number). The installers, Morley's = Harpsichords, told me at the time that the speakers must always face = away from the congregation, that way the organ would sound fine. He was = afraid that if they pointed directly at the congregation they would all = make for the door. The church was St Augustine's Gillingham. I wonder if = it is still there?   Duncan Charig Director, Kembla Correspondence College Pt-time Organist Mt. Kembla Anglican Church.
