The BBC's weekly radio show on Radio 2, "The Organist Entertains", seems to be be creating increasingly large armounts of negative feedback.

Kevin Grunill has asked us to remind any organ lovers in the Yorkshire area that Chris Powell's concert tomorrow (Saturday 11th January) will not be held at the Paramount Cinema in Penistone, but rather on the superb Allen Digital Theatre Organ installed at St. Andrews Methodist URC church in the town at 2.30 pm. All the proceeds from the concert will go towards the installation project for 2 Compton Cinema Organs in the Astoria Centre, Barnsley! Keep up the good work Kevin!
Happy Christmas to all our OrganFax readers. We hope Santa brought you everything you desire!
