There appears to be a significant problem with downloads from my website with the server marking the files as mp3 whereas they are m4a. This could have happened when my hosting company upgraded their servers to a new Linux distribution. I am currently investigating, but like every other b**ody company, it's using the pandemic to cry "reduced service". ... See MoreSee Less

I've just seen the email notifications from my website monitoring that it was down this morning for approx 6 hours. That was caused by the server company upgrading the LINUX operating system on the server cluster. If anyone sees any negative changes on my site, please do let me know! ... See MoreSee Less

**Hot Pipes Podcast 266**

May 2020 saw the 75th anniversary of Victory In Europe Day, and while the half-hour edition (276) celebrated with music popular in the 40s, this one-hour podcast takes us across Europe to many of the continent's theatre organs and organists.

Naturally I had intended this edition to be published in May, but the research for it proved to be far more arduous and time-consuming than expected, since much of what little information that could be found required translating. Pauline and I have also been working on our house with long-awaited decorating and maintenance. It's been a busy month!

MAY 2020 UPDATE

Thanks again to all who have supported our ability to purchase new material for your enjoyment by buying music from our store. We have noticed that all of our listings don’t turn up in eBay searches, so as not to miss any, we suggest you follow the store. Some of our already low prices have been lowered further.

In addition to the volume shipping deals and discounts, we are offering a new benefit from today on but it does not apply retroactively. For those of you who don’t play LPs or cassettes, you will be able to download free digital copies of your LP or cassette purchase that have been cleaned up in audio restoration software. If you want a CD, the cost will be $10 each including shipping. Instructions will be on the invoice included with purchases of LPs and cassettes.

For those of you who “swing both ways,” we have listed some classical organ CDs at low prices.

Please note that our inventory contains a lot of imported media at domestic prices with domestic shipping costs. These excellent recordings by great theater organists on superb organs, many that no longer exist, merit your consideration.

Again, thank you for your support. Our library contains most of the easily found and reasonably costing media. What we need to acquire is expensive. With your support, we can buy rarer items.

**Hot Pipes One-Hour Podcast 264 - Wacky Titles and Just Good Fun!**

I hope this new edition helps to keep you sane through these trying times! Today's show looks at the lighter side of music with a sampling of some of the more odd titles given to and light-hearted arrangements of musical compositions.

There's also a sneak preview of the upcoming BANDA release of GW's Home Federal Savings radio broadcasts from 1974, playing the Conn organ in his home.
