Possible television broadcast of the "Biggest"...

At last year’s Miss American pageant, the Midmer-Losh pipe organ in Boardwalk Hall was played >before< the live TV coverage began. Hopefully tonight the world’s largest pipe organ will be heard by the millions that tune in to watch Miss America - nationally televised on ABC at 9 p.m. EST. The organ, built into the walls and ceiling of Boardwalk Hall, is in incredibly excellent performance mode.
.
The instrument is in the process of being fully restored – a 10-year, $16 million project. What will be heard is twenty percent of it’s total capability. That 20% can make the floor shake! Hopefully ABC will allow a time slot.

This is from someone in-the-know, from a post yesterday:
"Steven Ball, staff organist at the Hall, will be playing. The part about hoping ABC will broadcast it has to do with timing and whether they run on time for the beginning of the broadcast. I did hear they are willing to let it (be) broadcast if things run on time and smoothly. I believe it's an on the spot decision, live in the moment."

As it turned out, the pre-broadcast organ performance was NOT broadcast... However, if one watched the show and is familiar with the hall, the entire thing was at capacity, so, that crowd likely numbering at least... in the tens of thousands... were treated to 20% of the tonal resources of the largest pipe organ on the planet prior to the "live" broadcast. (tape delayed for the more Western time zones...
