If you = move the Gedeckt and Viola to a new unit chest you could put the new Oboe and Celeste on the old chest. As a temporary measure you could do the old Moller thing of extending the Gedeckt to play as a 2-2/3' Flute Twelfth.

Got a note from one of the IRM members, taggers hit the museum and the CTA L cars seem to have been the apparent victims. Understand that South Elgin (RELIC) was hit by the same crew of vandals. This is not for publication, but looks like the Medinah organ is in jeopardy. The Shriners still retain ownership and transfer = will not be made until next month at the earliest...guess they pretty well scotched the Texas deal as they were looking to get big bucks from the = sale of the organ..seems like they got no takers...new owners are only interested in having the organ out and will still donate it when they get possession, no salvage value requirements etc., just a gift and the recipient gets it out. Will let you know any updates on the situation. Got =   a note from the local OHS chapter and they seem to understand the same specifics to the situation. Give my best to the group and maybe I will be able to catch up with you on Friday.   Jon

(something about the difficulties of finding enough *short* organ works to fill in around the long ones, IIRC...?)   I seem to recall him explaining it to Piporg-L at one point not too long ago...you might try going to the Piporg-L homepage and looking thru their archives. <http://www.albany.edu/piporg-l/> and go to the <archives> = link.   Hope this helps!   Tim (who is happy that the Little Rock classical station not only carries PipeDreams, but is also not a *bit* afraid of playing organ music regularly! Even at DRIVETIME......<gasp!>)

If other stations would promote it the way that our station does they might also get a better listening audience.   David
