(back) Subject: pipe vs plug-in From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Tue, 16 Mar 1999 08:04:39 -0500   My fellow List Members... I am very happy to see this debate finally come to an end. Too much friction among friends is not good. Sorry the Rodgers pooped out- I'm surprised it did. Thats about as bad as pulling ciphering pipes during a concert piece. Now lets all have a group hug, pick up the pieces, and carry on. I'm pleased with the response to the Orgy post. See??? We CAN all get along.   Rick.

I am the proud owner of a Gen-U-Ine 1971 Panasonic Quadrophic receiver with 8-track. Still works great! I have my CD and tape decks running through it...... but of a technology clash. :-)    
(back) Subject: birth/death dates From: "Robert Eversman" <highnote@mhtc.net> Date: Tue, 16 Mar 1999 08:36:10 -0600   Dear friends, I am playing a piece this Sunday from one of the Sacred Music Journals (no I don't use these all the time !) composed by Robert Graham. Does anyone know his year of birth and is he still alive. I hate just putting 20th c. in the bulletin. Please email the list so others can benefit. It is not in the AGO guide.   Thanks !   Robert Eversman Mineral Point WI  
(back) Subject: composer dates From: "Robert Eversman" <highnote@mhtc.net> Date: Tue, 16 Mar 1999 15:26:46 -0600   I came up with another composer not in the AGO book. Does anyone know the birth year of David Paxton? Is he still alive?   thanks   Robert Eversman Mineral Point WI   I think that is it for a while!  
(back) Subject: Re: birth/death dates From: "John M. Doney" <jdoney@email.msn.com> Date: Tue, 16 Mar 1999 17:24:23 -0000   Robert Graham was doing a Masters degree when I was a freshman in college. Probably 1928 would be a good birthdate for him. I have not heard of his death and I am sure I would have heard through the alumni magazine. Hope this helps you.   JOHN          
(back) Subject: Great Organs of New York From: jvitacco@interactive.net (Joe Vitacco) Date: Tue, 16 Mar 1999 18:13:18 -0500   GOONY is back.   It is a 4 CD set with 23 of NYC's most famous pipe organs, 27 distinguished organists, and a 140 page booklet documenting these famous pipe organs.   Come to www.greatorgancds.com and check it out.   Joe Vitacco  
(back) Subject: Keyboards From: "Jason McGuire" <jason@johannus-norcal.com> Date: Tue, 16 Mar 1999 17:28:54 -0800   There are two manufacturers of pipe organ keyboards that I am trying to find information about. One was called Pratt & Read and I was told they moved to Mexico. The other is PNS Organ Supply in England. Does anyone have any information on either of these two firms that might help me to locate them and communicate? I tried searching the web and, like always, ended up with nothing at all. Thank you.   Jason McGuire

If so, their address is in Brandon, Suffolk, England. They have a North American branch at 9090 Skillman #182-A, Dallas, TX 75243. Tel.: 1-800-364-0649.   John.
