(back) Subject: Re: Subject: Hello and question From: "Dennis Goward" <dlgoward@qwest.net> Date: Fri, 22 Jun 2001 07:50:56 -0700   Im facing my first crisis, and need some information. The church = purchased a Ahlborn Galanti Organ from another church about 8 years ago. It appears to be about 15 years in age. Id appreciate anyone sharing their experince with this make of organ from this generation. Its a Preluadium III I believe. It has begun to fail tonally and has a multitude of mechanical problems. Im trying to determine what the lifespan of these organs are = for an organ committee. Any information you can provide will be of help.   From what I've heard, they do burn rather well, with a nice aroma from the particle board console..   Seriously, 1 yrs is a long time for a church organ to be in regular = service. Had it been a top-line instrument it would probably be okay, but the A-C's were kind of the other end, so the durability isn't there, and the technology is not the best.   What's the chances for an organ fund?   Dennis

(back) Subject: "The Dish" Reaction Archive From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Sat, 23 Jun 2001 13:07:25 -0400   Hello, There has been a flurry of postings on that other organ list concerning people's reactions to the new Virgil Fox bio entitled "The Dish". Due to some of the more colorful and controversial content of the book, there has been a real mixed bag of opinions. There have also been a number of personal anecdotes from people whose lives have been touched by the great man in one way or the other. I find these stories most fascinating, and wish to assemble them in an archive that can be made available on a website for anyone who would care to read them. In addition, I would encourage you to share any pictures that you may wish to send along for inclusion in the site. Please feel free to post any related material either on or off list as you chose. I am interested only in the stories and photos, and unless you wish to receive credit for your contributions, I will not reveal the source of the stories or pictures. Let me know what you think about this project, or simply send any materials you wish to contribute. I will post the site link once I get it organized   Thanks Mike
