Living a Dream

Unread post by Donald Binks » Sun Nov 04, 2018 9:09 pm

I was lucky enough to attend an "open console" day at the wonderful Regent Theatre in Melbourne. Never did I dream as a young boy going there to see pictures that one day I could have my photo taken at the console of the mighty Wurlitzer organ! Another item ticked off the bucket list!

I like the gag reaction of your friends and I'm sure your rendition of "Chopsticks" is one for the ages.

I was actually playing the second do-diddy from the opera "Whackensnatch" made famous by the feraltone "Pegleg" Dingbatz.

Melbourne is on our itinerary for our return trip to Australia in 2020. Can I book a private recital now?

(I expect I'll likely receive notice that you are out of town for the year on a lengthy Tasmanian tiger expedition.)
