Ruth Organ Centennial at Myrtle Beach Pavilion
By William Griswold Jr

As some of you may know, the A Ruth & Sohn Organ at the Myrtle Beach
Pavilion is celebrating it's 100th birthday next year.  Does anyone
know if there are any special plans for the organ to celebrate the
event-restoration, etc.?

I'm also looking for recordings of the organ.  I made a very poor
recording when I was there over the summer of the organ, but it was
only playing five different pieces of music.  If anyone has any info
on the organ, please let me know.  I am hoping to see the organ again
next summer.

Also, if anyone knows anything about the other organ that plays on the
carousel, please let me know.  I have no clue as to who built it, but
I believe it is playing Wurlitzer 150 or 165 rolls.
