raytwhite Posted February 24, 2009 Share Posted February 24, 2009 A group of enthusiasts are restoring a Compton Electrone Organ that is thought to have once resided at the BBC Maida Vale recording studios. Here's the link to their Web site:- http://www.bbc.rochford-compton.com/ The problem is this: no BBC survivors of the 1950s can remember this machine, despite it apparently being played by Bill Davies for 'Friday Night is Music Night'. It has two cabinets of tone wheels and a transportable console, so it may have spent much of its time in other locations. Also, there was a Multicolortone organ at the studios, which was acquired by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and once used to create incidental music for 'Doctor Who' by Dudley Simpson. If anyone has any information, however little, about either of these organs it would be very much appreciated. Ray White Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
