I suspect that anyone familiar with the theater organ scene knows that the combination of Lew Williams and the RTOS Wurlitzer will provide a stellar evening of musical excellence.   For more information, driving directions, background info and many = pictures visit the RTOS "Home on the Web" at http://theatreorgans.com/rochestr/ .   We are looking forward to seeing you here.   Regards, Ken Evans

Speller" <jlspeller@mindspring.com> Date: Wed, 3 Apr 2002 19:06:55 -0600   I am rather puzzled why you would need a replacement blower if you have an early Austin organ, since the blowers are generally pretty much = everlasting. (Unlike modern blowers which, if you are lucky, last about twenty or = thirty years.) Almost nothing your blower could need -- such as rewinding, new bearings, etc. -- could possibly cost anything like as much as a replacement, and a replacement would not be nearly as good.   John Speller    
(back) Subject: blowers From: "Ross & Lynda Wards" <TheShieling@xtra.co.nz> Date: Thu, 4 Apr 2002 13:52:07 +1200   Not sure if I've mentioned this before, so please forgive me if I have, = but John is right, blowers can last virtually for ever. In our Wellington Town Hall the blowers are the original ones installed = when the organ was new in 1906. And no problems with them, either. For my own home organ here, my two biggish blowers are a 1920s Ventus from Lakuhuff, and a B.O.B. from about 1930. Both were 3-phase but I have converted both to single-phase. Should last me till I'm about 130, = probably. Ross
