From: Dwight Thomas, June 1999
I have updated information on the Opus 2164 (original Oakland, CA
Publix#1) since its stay at the Melody Inn Restaurant. This instrument
went on to be the nucleus for the Paramount Music Palace, Indianapolis
restaurant's 4/42 Wurlitzer in 1979. Extremely detailed information can
be found in the March 1979 (Vol.17, No.3) edition of "THE CONSOLE"
The Paramount closed in January, 1995 and the organ was sent to Kenny
Crome's shop in Reno, NV. It has been completely rebuilt and recently
bought by Bill and Barbara Dickerson of Sarasota, FL to be installed in
a new restaurant in Ellenton, FL. Opening of the restaurant is
scheduled for September 1999.
