(back) Subject: IRC & "Theatre Organ Time" From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Thu, 17 Feb 2000 21:16:05 -0600   Folks   I am forward the following announcement about "Theatre Organ Time" from Perth, Western Australia since there might be some of you on this list that would be interested in listening to the program. Those of us that are on-line for the Friday Night PipeChat IRC session will usually also tune this program in via Real Audio. Lesley and Gary have been aware that the PipeChat IRC crowd does listen and one night dedicated one of the numbers to us. Their programming is very good and as long as there aren't any network congestion problems it comes in loud and clear.   And it goes without saying that we always welcome newcomers to the Monday and Friday IRC "chats". If you wish to join in but don't know how to do so please go to the PipeChat IRC page at http://www.pipechat.org/irc.html for instructions on how to connect. Although the conversation usually revolves around organs almost anything goes on the channel so don't be surprised if you find us discussing computers or the weather around the country or something like that. Those discussions are usually short and then we DO get back to organ discussion!<G>   David   ********************************************************************** > Hello, > >We have a great line-up of Theatre Organ Music for your enjoyment this = week. > >Please join us. > >Regards > >Lesley and Gary > > >Web site: <http://www.inf.net.au/~duo>http://www.inf.net.au/~duo > >Program Times > >Western Australia------Saturday 10.00 am (GMT + 8 Hours) > >USA >Eastern Standard Time-----Friday 9.00 pm >Central Standard Time ---- Friday 8.00 pm >Mountain Standard Time---Friday 7.00 pm >Pacific Standard Time -----Friday 6.00 pm > >Canada >Manitoba-------------Friday 8.00 pm >Alberta -------------- Friday 7.00 pm >British Columbia------Friday 6.00 pm > >New Zealand ---------Saturday 3.00 pm > >UK------Saturday 2.00 am > >The Netherlands ----Saturday 3.00 am > > > > >
