Hi Andy,

Welcome to the forums. You will find everyone so friendly and helpful. The information and advice you can get is unbelievable.

You are so lucky to be living in Blackpool where you can go and listen to the Tower Wurlitzer.

I live in Walsall where the first Wurlitzer to be installed in a cinema was established in the "Picture House" which later became the "Odeon".

I've played many cinema organs and would love to play the Tower organ.

Enjoy the forums.

Hi Andy, this is a great forum, lots of help and information. I'm sure you will enjoy being part of it.
I'm from Norfolk myself but coincidently have just spent 6 hours dancing at the tower ballroom today with my husband! John Bowdler was brilliant as usual on the Wurlitzer and Mark Allen (not heard of him before so a new face to me) was just as brilliant on the electronic (I'm not sure what it is they have got in there at the moment). Shame I didn't see your post earlier or I could have popped over for a cuppa and played a few tunes.
