(back) Subject: Trip to Arizona... From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Fri, 01 Jan 1999 17:33:02 -0600   Hello everyone! I’ve arrived back from my Holiday trip to Arizona. It was different this Christmas, not being home, but it was a great way to end the year. We went to visit family from both sides of my immediate family here in Greenville.   We left on the 18th at 6 p.m., and by the afternoon of the 20th, we were in Holbrook, Arizona, where we stayed the night. Sunday, we saw the Petrified National Forest, the end of the Painted Desert, and the Arizona Meteor Crater, and continued on to the Grand Canyon, arriving there Sunday night. We awoke to a brisk 6 degree (F), snowy morning with snow everywhere, and spent the day in the canyon area. We then traveled to Phoenix, and stayed there for the remainder of the trip.   The first night, I went to the Arizona Mills Mall with my cousins. That was one of the most interesting facilities (that did not have an organ) that I’ve ever seen. Clean carpet for one, tile mosaics, television monitors, neon light sculptures, solid sculptures, animated sculptures, the building computer welcomed you as you entered, etc… They had an IMAX in addition to the standard multiplex theatres as well.   Nothing much happened until we took a driving tour east of Phoenix and the little "extension" of Maricopa County. Following came MY highlight of the trip, Organ Stop Pizza. It’s no rumor they DO have great pizza, and the music is something that must he heard to be believed. Lew Williams was the organist for the night. Several family members joined us, totaling to a party of 14. Most us them stayed around for the after-hours tour that Lew kindly gave. I’ve added to my "You haven’t lived until…" list: "You haven’t lived until you’ve sat beside the 32’ Diaphone (CCCC?) at Organ Stop, and pressed the primary…"   Lew showed us around, and played some interesting things from the console. The Trumpet eC on the back wall was wonderful, the Serpent stinging, and the "M.Harris Redwood Tibia" singing like a bird…as well as the tuned bird whistles, both pianos, the tuned bass drums, the new band fife, and everything else that is too numerous to mention. I also saw the Vandervere (sp?) residence WurliTzer, which was very interesting as well.   I’ve been counting some of the organs I’ve missed. I passed two in Mississippi on the way out, and I passed through Dallas, Amarillo, Albuquerque, and Flagstaff, however many may be on that route. I stood outside of the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, but had no way inside. We took I-10 from Phoenix to Mobile, and I watched as Sunland Park Mall passed by my window. We went through San Antonio, Houston, Beaumont, Gulfport, etc, and I wondered what was going on with those chapters as I passed each area.   Thanks goes out to my family, Lew Williams, and Joe Peterzak, for showing us a great time in the Valley.   Kevin Cartwright Greenville, Alabama kevin1@alaweb.com

Take the root, the third, and the fifth, and "viola," you have a beat going at 8Hz. Of course, that IS if they are properly tuned.   I just mentioned to someone else that the playing of the 32' OSP Diaphones made my aunt sick to the stomach. There were 10 people crammed into that chamber, and only three of us knew why my aunt was becoming more and more uncomfortable...   And the sound of metal rafters gnashing against each other at 16Hz...hog heaven...   Just another funny little story to add to the one I sent this afternoon...   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com BTW: Testing...1...2..3.. O.K., PipeChat-L still works.

A whole bunch of sheet music from 1870-1879 has been scanned in by the Library of Congress and is available online at http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/smhtml/smhome.html   Happy new year!
