From: "Bob Conway" <conwayb@sympatico.ca> Date: Fri, 13 Apr 2001 16:30:58 -0400   Jason Comet has attempted to clear the very muddied waters of organ = design.   I applaud him for saying it in his own manner, - a manner that I as a 76 year old, could never have done, - but what he says makes sense to me all the same!   I did see Virgil Fox in his finery and fancy shoes, until then I had only heard of him as a bad trend in organ performance, but on that night in New =   York, I was completely taken by him, and have been ever since!   I have seen Diane Bish only on TV, but if she can play and entertain folks =   the way that she does, then all power to her! It is always a pleasure to hear, and see, a real show person, be they organists or not, there is something about the hidden extrovert in me that likes all of it!   I wish that Jason and his up and coming colleagues every success, and perhaps we shall yet again see an organ revival be it with instruments or performers.   "Good on Yer", Jason!   Bob Conway
