One day, I came home with a fair size Eastern Painted which I thought I would just keep for a couple of days (until all of the children in the family could see and hold it). Unfortunately, it was large enough that it climbed out ot the aquarian and disappeared totally. Many months later when we moved our Lowry in order to clean the rug, out popped the turtle, little worse for the months of being traped inside the organ. We figured that it must have climbed in through the expression pedal port and couldn't get back out. Bill W. (then in upstate NY)

The main public classical music station here dropped it, along with several other specialty music shows, even though a local builder was underwriting the whole thing, because they "wanted to appeal to a wider audience," even though 10:30p on Sunday night is not my idea of prime time. Another local public station = in Tacoma Park, MD, which I can't get well downtown, launched a replacement show with an undergraduate from Peabody as MC, in the same time slot as "Millenium of Music." All I will say, since he may be on line with us = now, is that he was no Michael Barone. 8^) That station, which is owned by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, has now gone to a contemporary Christian format. The other public station here is news, talk, and bluegrass, so they're not interested.   You'd think, wouldn't you, that public radio would be a natural home for little niche audiences, but the stations here are getting very competitive for ratings. What a shame.   Evie   mailto:efrowe@mindspring.com

What a shame.<snip>   There's been an ominus shift in NPR's policies of the last few years, = along with those of their affiliates. They've become "quasi-commercial", depending on ratings to boost the size of "grants" they receive for programming. Things got to a boiling point out West in San Francisco, where Pacifica Broadcasting's KPFA summilarly dumped a lot of its "community" programming for more mainstream (read that, "Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninoff in Top 40 rotation") offerings. There was quite a flap about this, with the enemy being Pacifica's "CEO", Patricia Scott.   There was a time when almost all commercial classical stations had an = organ program of some kind, many being locally produced. I still have RTR tape copies of the old "Organ Loft" program that was aired many moons ago on LA's KCBH, long gone for many, many years. A similar program was = broadcast later on KFAC, which was LA's last commercial classical station. All, including most of the stations, are now gone. Money has become the final factor in programming, not musican coverage or accomodation of all styles of music. In short, many "classical" stations have become "top 40" stations...I mean, how many time can you hear Beethoven's Fifth before throwing your tuner out the window?? Fortunately in Los Angeles, "PipeDreams" is heard faithfully every Sunday night. However, I'm sure = due to a recent flap between Diane Bish and the Coral Gables Reich, "The Joy = of Music" was yanked from TBN. I rather enjoyed watching Ms. Bish bash her way through things, on consoles scattered worldwide. However, the "God Squad" certainly won't have one of HER kind sullying their airwaves!   DeserTBoB

Robert Eversman     I don't know how well this would work in the US of A, but here is how we recruit!   First of all contact several schools asking if you can come an recruit. Go to these schools housing the age range you want to recruit from (this, obviously is for boy\girl trebles) and have the teachers send a message round saying that if they are interested in joining a choir come to this room at this time. Then give a short talk about what the choir does and = let them ask questions (if you can try to take an actual member of the choir - preferably the same age as the kids) and let them talk and be questioned too. Next take each person one by one into a practise room of some sort = and just make them sing a popular song or a scale or something like that that you can play. Obviously unless already musicians they won't be amazing, = but most will have potential. Take down their name and address and give them a mark out of 10 just for your reference. If you have any give them some literature about the choir to take home to their parents. Next choose the best however many you want and contact them and see if they can join.   This usually works quiet well and the schools are co-operative. One point = of advice - don't take your Vicar along!!!   Hope this is of use,   Richard Pinel

The latter part of that comment is a new expression to me, so I can't comment.   "The Joy of >Music" was yanked from TBN.   I saw Diane's show on TBN very recently. I wasn't aware they had cancelled her show.   I rather enjoyed watching Ms. >Bish bash her way through things, on consoles scattered >worldwide.   I believe when it's all said and done, Diane will be remembered most for the Joy of Music.

I don't want to be a wet blanket, but a word of caution.... Nonsingers in the congregation are not always the best judge of voices. I have occasionally been advised to go after someone because they have a fabulous voice, only to go out of my way and recruit, yea beg, a ghastly honker voice to join the choir.   I think the best way to recruit people into the choir is to do good music well.

While the choir members can be fun to be with, I don't work to make choir FUN. I work to make our music the best it can be -- singing beautifully is fun, but that's after lots of hard work. This is not to say there are not times of levity and fun in my rehearsals, because there certainly are some. They are a biproduct, however, of our unceasing devotion to our goal. My 2 cents worth.
