The May number of Organists' Review has an article on page 234 on Reggie Foort and his touring organ. The organ was built by Moller in 1938 and 5 30 foot pantechnicons were used to move it from place to place. The organ was built in units and each plugged in to the other. Connections to the console were on a large steel plate which bolted on to the console. There were 28 pipe ranks providing 260 stops including a wide array of the usual trappings of the theatre organs, bells and other percussion bird whistles, train hooters and foghorns etc. over 5 manuals. When the war and shortage of fuel put an end to Foort's travels with the organ he offered it to the BBC.The BBC organist was Sandy MacPherson who was broadcasting on a Hammond because of the destruction of the BBC's Compton in a bombing raid. It was installed in a specially altered redundant church and the broadcasts continued from there. When the lease on the church expired there was nowhere to put the organ and it was taken to Holland where it was put into a Church. IT then was moved to the USA into a San DIego Pizza Hut. IT's final resting place was Pasadena Civic Auditorium where, as far as it is known it still resides. (acknowledgement to the Organists' Review opf May 2003 for the information). Has anyone played this organ?

It was a FABULOUS sound for BOTH (grin).   The installation was quite stunning, with all kinds of little lights that lit up when ranks came on, and flashing lights on visible relays, etc. which could be seen through the plexiglass expression shades.   The grand piano was out of the chamber, to the right of the console, so you could see the keys go up and down; the traps were arranged on high shelves up and down the room, with pin-spots that came came on to illuminate them when they were in use; and a Lionel electric train (!) operated from the console that wound in and out of the traps with puffs of smoke (!!) from the engine.   A two-manual Wurlitzer had been added to it as an "antiphonal" organ in the back of the room, complete with its own two-manual console. There was also an en-chamade in the back of the room (Post Horn? Brass Trumpet? I don't remember) that I THINK found its way into the Bombarde organ at St. Paul's Cathedral in San Diego.   Cheers,   Bud   bobelms wrote: > In an earlier post I mentioned Reggie Foort.

BUT, if I'd only been able to dial 911 and NOT give the location, it wouldn't have done much good to call.   That's not the only reason ... organists have been mugged and murdered over the years in urban areas ... the ability to call 911 and have the call IMMEDIATELY give your location (whether YOU can or not) might be the difference between living and dying.   When I was younger, I thought nothing of coming and going to and from dark churches at all hours of the day and night (with NO cell phone); I wouldn't think of leaving the house for ANY reason without one today.   Cheers,   Bud   melisma@uniserve.com wrote:   >And this has WHAT to do with the organ, on an *international* list?? > > >Melisma (under her Rock, trying to decide if she should be peeved or not) > > > > >Quoting ProOrgo53@aol.com: > > > >>Consumers can still register through Sunday, August 31 for the = Do-not-call >>list by dialing 1-888-382-1222 or visiting http://www.donotcall.gov. >> >>Snowden is urging consumers to also contact both their cellular = telephone >>companies and state officials to urge them to provide what is known as >>Enhanced >>911 service, which allows an operator to pinpoint the location or the = number >>of >>a wireless call. >> >>Though wireless customers pay a surcharge for E911 service, some cell = phones >> >>and transmission towers cannot transmit the location of the caller, and >>cash-strapped local >>and state governments have not spent the money they've collected to = install >>the new technology, instead using it to close budget gaps. >> >>Hope this is helpful information, >>Dale Rider >> >> >> > > >"Pipe Up and Be Heard!" >PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics >HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org >List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org >Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > > > > >
