Passing of John Del Carlo, Opera Singer
By Gordon Stelter

I thank Bob Taylor et al for clearing up the mystery of who posted so
many wonderful videos, of such a superlative piano, on YouTube while
identified only as AmpicoGPM.  While his passing is surely saddening
(especially for those who knew him, of course), the presence of these
videos will remain as an inspiration to all as to what a reproducing
piano is _supposed_ to sound like!

P.S.: I always figured that the front of the drawer was left off
this piano to give a little bit more knee-room to anyone who wished
to play it by hand.

 [ Or maybe because the RBB has a wider drawer front than normal
 [ so it must be custom-made.  -- Robbie
