Sirius XM streaming either over my PC and/or over my Bluetooth  Anker Soundcore speaker (plus in my car) --  tons o tunes - genres????  You name it - Standards, rock & roll, oldies, blues. country, bluegrass, classical and MORE! ---- it wears me out!  Change the channel to search for something remembered or something nice and you're stuck --- all great music.  If you can't find something enjoyable to listen to -- you've got a problem or a deaf ear!!!!

Life is too short and with music to fit every mood - who could ask for anything more?

I'm duly impressed, Levi! Do you have nay Edison cylinders?

@Gunhippie That’s what I meant when I said the wax rolls. I forgot what they were actually called, but my grandpa used to have a machine he made for the Edison cylinders. Oh, and I was just listening to the sweet sound of sanding away my first Bondo.

Doug, you lucky  When I was in art school I did a brochure on pipe organs in the Denver area and befriended the Dean of organ music at CU's Mackie auditorium. They have a player pipe organ (2 keyboards) in a museum in the basement and he let me play it once. What a thrill. There is a large, full metal pipe organ in the auditorium. They also have small pipe organs in practice rooms there. It's a pipe organ school. Anyway, I later had a Korg C3 organ synth (Hammond B3 sound) and some nice pipe organ patches for my synth. I had a tri-amped system with an 18" subwoofer in a 17 cu.ft. box, so it was pretty thrilling to play (ask the neighbors). I had studied Baroque theory in college and even wrote some pipe organ music. Mainly a piano guy playing Blues, Rock & Roll, Boogie Woogie, Jazz and a bit of Classical.

Gar, that is really cool.  I unfortunately have no formal music theory background, only playing the organ, which came from lessons starting when I was in middle school.  I didn't do any formal music work in school other than take lessons from the college's organ prof, who interestingly enough is only one of two of my college profs I have maintained contact with.

Your synth set-up sounds great.  The latest rage in "synthetic" organs is the Hauptwerk and Grand Orgue software packages that you run on a PC with a MIDI interface and comprehensive digital samples of an organ to re-create a really good representation of the sampled real organ -- if you have a good sound system.  Hauptwerk is a really expensive piece of software, Grand Orgue is the freebie Linux version.  It's a great way to have your own pipe organ, as it were. 

Personally, I have a small (real) pipe organ at home which I purchased from my original organ teacher's husband after she died.  The organ at church is ranked 28th largest in the world and is a *lot* of fun to play, though I only sub at church, I am not the full-time organist.  I helped maintain the organ at church for a few years, doing mostly periodic tuning.  I'd hold keys at the console while the other guy banged the pipes into tune.

Doug, you have a real pipe organ? WOW! My patches were digital samples of real pipe organs, but limited to about 8 sounds. A couple full stop types and some upper register stuff. Still lots of fun. All past tense. I don't have any instruments now... (sigh). I learned to regulate pianos and rebuilt and sold some when I had a heated garage. I bought the baby grand from the hot club in Boulder, The Blue Note when it closed down, as the sound man was a friend of mine. It had a Helpenstill pick-up in it. Worked on it a bit and rented it out to the likes of Delbert McClinton and Gate Mouth Brown. It had a real bright sound for rock and roll. The list of people that played that piano would be amazing... Dr. John and Keith Jarrett topping the list.

I play by ear and am basically self taught, so I really struggled through baroque theory. Learned a lot though. Almost went to Berkeley in Boston. Took up design and illustration instead. What church is the organ in?

Big band. The radio in my garage is tuned in to a local AM radio station that plays mostly big band music with the occasional oldie rock song thrown in. Lots of Benny Goodman, Harry James, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Glen Miller, Zavier Cugat, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, etc.

Very cool, Gar.  As I said I have had no formal music theory training and at times have kind of wished I did.  I was a computer science major and math education minor in college, so no music at all.  It was good of the organ prof to agree to take me on for lessons and I am thankful for that.

The church is Holy Trinity Lutheran in Buffalo.  Right across the street from the famed Anchor Bar, which is credited with inventing "Buffalo wings."   We joke at the church that when the organist lets loose on the organ that they can sing along to the hymn at the Anchor Bar.  The organ is 151 ranks (somewhere around 7,000 pipes) with a five-manual console on the chancel and a three-manual console in the gallery (balcony).  It started out as a very modestly-sized instrument in the late 1940s and was slowly added to and expanded over the years.  It was quite a mish-mash inside the chambers by the time I was helping to work on it in the early 2010s and in 2015 we had the chancel part of the organ pulled out for a full rebuild of the wind chests.

My own organ is a little three rank plus a mixture unit organ with a two-manual console.  It was built by the Schlicker Organ Company here in Buffalo in the mid-1950s for my first organ teacher, who was a high school music teacher and gave piano and organ lessons in her house.  As pipe organs go it is pretty small. it is more like what you'd find in a practice room at a college, or in a house.  It keeps me out of trouble ... or in trouble.  After I retired last year I got back into playing and in addition to playing at home I was going in to church one day a week and having a go on the mighty monster (hence the earlier photo I posted) which earned me an invite to fill in for the organist this summer for the church's online worship streams when she took her vacation, though that was on the smaller organ in the church's chapel.

This is me with the wind chest of my instrument, the console is separate:

Listening to XM satellite radio. They have some good stations hosted by dead guys. They have BB King’s Bluesville and Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure.  Guess they work for cheap🤨

Hey Doug, way way cool. Yes that is a small pipe organ, but a large instrument non the less. How many people have their own? The player organ I got to play was a 2 manual with a row of stops above and a set of pedals. There was a bedroom sized space behind it for the pipes and a compressor somewhere. The player part was a brass cylinder with holes in it like a player piano roll, filled with compressed air that actuated the valves for the notes. I suppose there were more cylinders for different songs. Here is a pic of Macky. The pipes are behind the grill works and the console rises up out of the stage. I could not find a photo of the player one. Not to many people know there is a museum down there. There have been a couple gruesome murders in Macky and one of them was in a pipe organ recital room in one of the towers. The place is haunted!
Gar

Oh... The Dean of music in College personally kicked me out of the arts building every day even though I was a music minor and payed my music fees. Tough to get an education with a Dean who hates Jerry Lee Lewis. "We don't play that kind music here!"
You cannot imagine how many places I have been kicked out of. Many hundreds I imagine. Dorms, stages, practice rooms, bars etc, etc. Then other times people would buy me drinks.

+1 on the Sirius radio.  I am in the middle of a four-month freebie trial, part of some class action suit settlement that I was somehow eligible for.  Interesting since I have never paid for a Sirius subscription, just the free trial when I bought my car and the free periods they give now and then to entice you to subscribe.  I love the 40s channel on Sirius, though sadly it is the channel that often gets pre-empted for other offerings.

And Gar, thanks for the pix of the Mackie organ.  The pipe organ world is very interesting what with the church and concert organs and the movie house Wurlitzer-type theater organs, and either mechanical action or some form of electrical action, the sophisticated electronic controls and so on.  When the organ at church was rebuilt they put in a new control system and the massive console is connected to the main organ by a fiber optic cable, and there are multiple memories for individual organists to save their own settings and so on.

I remember riding my bike to high school (75-78) and always seeing a bunch of 8-track tapes with the tape pulled out along certain streets.  I am an old rocker so I mostly listen to rock bands from the 70s, 80s, and 90s.  Right now, Journey's Don't Stop Believin'.
