"Thanks" am enjoying it as I am posting... Gee... can't wait for Sunday after listening to this!!!

Hope to see you Sunday Bob !!!!!! And anyone else who "loves to shuffle".... please come to Sportsman's Hall MD Sunday evenings.
Gee, it has been a long time since I heard that tune on an organ. It brought chills to my spine and I wanted to skate which I will be doing in 1 hour to artifical CD music.

Isn't that the first played session skating song for most rinks in PA??

Now that you mention it, I think you are right, he generally opens with it. At 10 minutes+, I am gasping for an oxygen bottle by the end!

Forgotten Point: Yes I have seen the young 30-40 year olds and even younger come and skate hard in PA (Trexlertown) and up here in MA sometimes seeded by us supposedly older skaters. It is great to have them and it seems like they like the interaction and WE like the value they add.

Yours in Skating, born PA-Skater, MA/NY Skating Dave
Hi Dave... I e-mailed Marty this morning and he got back to me a littlle while ago. What is posted here for the Organists is just about all there is for PA ! He said it's just the 4 Organists left now. After Cornwells Skating Center sold the Organists kind of lost track of Dave Paden....

So I guess we are more Blessed than I thought... We have only 4 Organists left in our area and they all play sessions within a 10 to 60 mile radius from where I live!!! So folks... we all need to make a point when we are leaving after sessions to say a big "thank you" to our Organists. They have been very faithful, (some for 40 years now) sitting up there each and every week providing us with such a good time!!!

Concert was great! I had fun , nice audience. Reading rules!

Hmmmm- So I went to Fantasy before I played!
Nice floor - a little slippery. But nice.
A little smaller than I am used to. That could be the low ceiling though.

I hope I did not make to many enemies.
I was definitely going to fast. I should know better but I had a lot of pent up energy. A lot of kids going the wrong way. I noticed the guards do nothing. Cool if you are about 7 years old.

But I had a blast.

Please come down to adult skate at the palace - tue. mornings.
Great skaters and a lot of fun. I speed and there is an older speed skater there whom is just amazingly fast!!!!!!!!!


I am the one with mixed wheels - Cannibals and speed rays - yellow(orange) & red.
Please say hello.
Matt

Default Name that tune or mix

Hi NaNaDo, retread, Others,

Down in Session skating I posted a question on what are the root songs that Corey is playing in that very long time starting session organ song.

BTW Bob, I think you are supposed to be tying your skates and coming into the rink rather than skating it for 10 minutes solid.

Oh shoot, I forgot to watch the news last night, they had a nice preview of the festival on Friday.

LOL, you hit the Saturday matinee? Brave soul with all the little kids I've noticed the floor is a little slippery lately too, I thought it was just me. Tues mornings huh? I can't until summer vaca because of my kids schedules but I'll try come June.

Hi Dave... My husband and I got a chance to meet Bob last night at Sportsman's Hall. And I'll tell ya... "He sure does enjoy skating" He's like a kid in a candy store!!! ... and he brought a small group of friends with him last night too... everyone had a great time.

Last night he did have the names for the songs Corey is playing in the video... I am sure when he logs on today he will post the information for you.

ps: Many people are already in the rink and "have their skates on" by the time the first song is being played. That's part of the excitement... "getting all pumped up for the evening"

It was a pleasure meeting you and Ken last night! Yeah, my wife and my Mother say thay haven't seen me so happy in years! Anyway, Ralph Brown was the organist last night, and sure enough, it sounded like the same song started the session, although the rest of the songs in the medely were different. He says it was called "Point of No Return". Not the Kansas version

Bob

Here's Ralph gettin down....


And some folks you might know doing the same!



Here's a better shot of that lovely couple

Dave... the songs are....
"Point of No Return" - "Jeremiah was a Bull Frog" and "Joy, to the World" was the three titles that we came up with last night from Corey's video.

Thanks for the pic's Bob.... we always have a great time! It was a pleasure meeting you too last night! Like I said... "you sure do enjoy yourself"! And it's so easy to have a great time in such a beautiful rink that play's the best music on the East Coast!!! Did your friends from the Animal Shelter have a good time???

These pic's are the proof of how good skating is for ya..."while we're on the floor skating, we always 'feel' so much younger than we are"!!!!

& dangerous!!!! Only thing about cosmic is when they turn off the lights it is really dark!!!!!!!!!! Love the glow stuff on the walls.

Matt
It is cool but since the manager that use to work there is gone now and the new manager doesnt know how to run the place

Default Nice Floor, Rink Closed Set Up, Music, Yet Low on Skaters.

Hi NaNaDo, Bob,

Great pictures, and "fun having" smiles. And by the way I love that the place is lit rather than all dark for the teen crowd.

The only problem is NOT enough skaters on that big looking floor.

With enough skaters you guys/gals will have to hug nearer to the center rather than the outside so you don't get run over.

Have Fun, and Continue to Post.

Hello again Dave...
There is a 4th song to add to the above list...I don't know if this is the correct title, but you will get the "jist"!
"Knd of a Hush Hush All Over the World"!

RE: not many skaters.... Bob took these pics at the end of the night, allot of skaters generally leave during the last few skates of the evening! There is many of us that have a 1 or 2 hours drive home.

RE: "hug the center of the floor"! No, believe it or not... we are not center of the floor skaters ... (yet)!
We're "Wall Huggers"... Can't keep up with the young ones anymore, but, we can hold our own along the wall!!! Right Bob ???

Lightbulb After thought on "Wall Huggers"

Hey Dave... you would really be suprised !!!
There is "allot" of "Old Fart Wall Hggers' at this rink!!!
It almost seems like... the older they are... the better they are!
So many old one's shuffle right along side the Teens and Young Adults.... and keep up!

In Trexlertown (near Allentown) a mature couple maybe in their late 60s used to couple skate in the gang skates led by the 20 30 year olds. It looked like sometimes they had to slow down so as not to hit the youngster infront of them.

Hi gang....You bet Jean, maybe we (I) don't have endurance, but we can still boogie! Here's a shot I hoped to use as a profile picture, but we were shuffling too fast to focus Worpspeed Fatman!


Seriously Dave, the people who come on Sunday nights come to shuffle to organ music, not waltz. (well some do that too). As Jean said, many leave a little early, as we have long drives home. Hopefully, the rink will do well enough to continue the organ night. It has restored my soul.

You make me laugh Bob!
You said the "magic word" ..."Endurance"
That's why we don't try to keep up with the young ones anymore....
We can hold our own as "Wall Huggers", but, travel at our own pace so
"we can last the whole session" and will still have enough strength left
for Dance Steps "after" session.!
