I'm one, and I know one other. Anyone else?   I personally like those three because they are all mechanically fascinating, as well as (marginally) useful.     Regards,   Bob

(back) Subject: New position announcement (big!) From: ScottFop <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Tue, 26 May 1998 15:38:48 EDT   Well, it looks like it's going to be "Farewell to the Phelps-a-phone" (thank GOD!)   I have been appointed to the post of Organist and Director of Music at the Shrine of the Little Flower in Detroit. Not only will I be moving back to a city I very much enjoy but I will be playing 120 ranks of vintage, extant Kilgen every day. The organ, built in 1930, was built as a sister to the instrument at St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC.   I start the first part of July. So, if you all will excuse me now- I have a million things to do.   (Ah- the thoughts of wallowing daily amongst all those warm foundation tones!!!!)   Obviously- the job here at St. Therese in Munhall, PA is now officially open to anyone who may be interested.   Scott (what ever will I do without this Casavant that I have grown to love so dearly?)

(back) Subject: Smoke Gets In Your Pipes... From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> Date: Tue, 26 May 1998 16:13:55 -0500   Don't know if y'all have noticed it on the news, but here in Austin and farther south in Texas, we're all having to live without seeing the blue, blue skies above us. True, it's not quite as hot, with the temps in the 80's, but still, some mornings it's enough to make you gag, what with all the smoke coming up here all the way from southern Mexico and Central America. I understand that drug traffickers down there have been starting the fires to clear the land for larger pot plantations - maybe it's time we broke out the agent orange, as well as a little HE for the personnel, too!   Anyway, I was just wondering if any of you organ techies thought that exposure to smoke might affect organ pipes, you know, make 'em keep the smell longer that it would normally and give it off later. We don't have pipes at our church, but I thought I'd print out your replies and run them over to my organ teacher, whose church has a nice old PO.   \/\/\

Glad you're going on to an instrument you're going to be happy with. When are you going to be in Charlotte? Got much to talk about. Write when you can. later Dave

(back) Subject: new CD From: cremona84000@webtv.net (bruce cornely) Date: Tue, 26 May 1998 18:55:56 -0400   My moles are working over-time these days. Seems that Peter Baicchi has released a new CD, "Organ Under Glass", recorded (where else) at the Crystal Cathedral. It is now available from OHS (16.98+shipping). It even has a work commissioned especially for this release, according to Molebert! I know there are lotsa people chomping at the bit to get more Crystal Cathedral sounds in their collection; can't wait for a review. If you order it now you won't have to lug it home from the convention.   bruce o h s __________ a g o cornely o o __________ o o ........... cremona84000@webtv.net ...........

(back) Subject: Southern Tier NY USA concerts - Peckham & Radloff (cross posted) From: clarkd@ibm.net Date: Tue, 26 May 1998 18:13:19 -0700   I have two concerts annoucements.   First, Nancy Radloff will be playing at Trinity Memorial Episcopal at 44 Main St, Binghamton NY. The organ at Trinity is a 3 manual Casavant organ in a wonderful acoustic space. I am a little biased on this one since I take my lessons from Peter Browne at Trinity Memorial.   Second, David Peckham will play at the Clemens Center on 3/31 at 4:00 pm. I have been to a couple of David's concerts and they are always great. It will be theatre organ flavored with Harold Lloyd's movie Safety Last. The organ is a 4/20 Marr & Colton. The Clemens Center is in downtown Elmira.   Let me know if you need more information. Dave Clark

(back) Subject: New Teacher From: Beau Surratt <beaupiano@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 26 May 1998 20:16:50 -0500   Hi!!! I had my first lesson with my new organ teacher today! I think she will be a good teacher.We worked on some great hymn playing stuff ( my other teacher did'nt do that), and some pedal exercises. We also worked Bach's Little Fugue In G Minor, and the Widor Toccata, both of which I chose. I really enjoyed my lesson. Just thought you might be interested how it went.   Beau Beau Surratt beaupiano@earthlink.net Organist, Bemis United Methodist Church Student, South Side High School
