Greetings all, from a sunny-yet-chilled-Atlanta!

I am back after a second trip to Florida in the past month, this time I was involved in a most successful holiday fund-raiser for the Central Florida Chapter of ATOS. I had the privilege of sharing the bench with at the 3/9 Wurlitzer (nicely augmented by some excellent digital voices) at the Pinellas Park Auditorium.

And what the heck is that supposed to mean? I’ll explain.

For the second time in a month, I am headed back to Florida, the Tampa area again.
I hope to catch up on some things, including what is happening with the big 5-manual Walker at the Tampa Bay Lightning arena now that hockey is on the brink of cancelling the entire 2012-2013 season. Not sure the organ has been heard in any capacity, so I will chat with the locals and find out.

It’s always great fun to head back to Indiana, and this recent trip involved a concert at the Warren Performing Arts Center in Indianapolis on the former Indiana Theatre 3/18 Barton, along with a silent film – Steamboat Bill, Jr. – at Long Center in Lafayette. It is just GREAT to have that wonderful 3/21 Wurlitzer back on line and singing beautifully once again.

Well I knew it was hot in Norman, OK, but it wasn’t until the Technical Experience event last week that I could literally compare it to a bake oven.
