See Pedal Percussion & Pipes in menu

for the following

 

ALAN HAVEN - AN IMAGE. 

It tells his life story in words and music, and I like to think it will now be recogised as a tribute to his talent and contribution to the organ and keyboard world.


KEITH BECKINGHAM

Back in the 80s I presented a series of live concerts at the BBC Playhouse in Manchester featuring artists playing the BBC WurliTzer theatre organ, and also on electronic of their own choice.  One of the first was Keith Beckingham and the full concert can now be heard, together with photos and additional information on the new website.

 


BRIAN SHARP

When this famous organist passed away, also in January 2016, I decided to upload the two complete halves of a concert at the same venue, as a tribute to his amazing skill and artistry at the theatre pipe organ and electronic organ...often both at the same time as you will hear in this live concert from the early 80s.

 KLAUS WUNDERLICH (ORGAN CELEBRITIES VIDEO 23) HAS NOW OVER  93.879 HITS SINCE BEING UPLOADED TO YOU-TUBE IN 2010. HAVE YOU SEEN IT YET?


PONTIN'S MEMORIES No 2

 

This second video  covers in detail the pioneering years when Pontin's moved their popular UK Organ Festivals to Middleton Tower, Morecambe, Lancashire...their largest venue at that time.   These festivals went on to set the bar to a level of support and presentation that has never been equaled.  The venue itself had a faascinating history and this is covered with historic photos being seen for the first time.  Maybe you were there: did you know any of the artists: tell us where they are now: share your memories of those halcyon days by adding your comments to the video.   

 

 


 

NEWS.....

Notes from the Producer:

You will note from our Menu listing that we have do not have a dedicated NEWS page.   This is because news is left to the websites who deal with it - see Keyboard News & Chat in Menu.   However, there is nothing stopping you writing to our GUESTBOOK as someone has already done.  Your letter will be published if it considered in anyway relevant to the nature of this website. Regrettably, it is not normally possible to include news of forthcoming events on the Organ1st Radio programme - please see the full explanation in FAQs.

Television of the future.   Sony have started to produce television sets that connect to the Internet, and hence YOUTUBE.   Other manufacturers will surely follow.   This means that sometime in the future you will be able to see the Gram-r-fone video channel on the bigger screen of your TV set.

Those who have digital TV at the present time can do this by connecting their computer to the set by using the appropriate leadMore details

CD Albums available   Links have been added to players with albums available at Organ1st MSS Studio.
The albums may, or may not, have tracks of the ones played on the YOUTUBE video - so it would be wise to look at the album's playlist on the Organ1st website.
