Today’s guest is the president of the Red River American Theatre Organ Society, Ryan Hardy!

We do a deep dive into the history of the unit orchestra, how to maintain the organ’s arsenal of instruments, and getting a new generation excited about the Mighty Wurlitzer! We also get frequent musical interludes performed by Ryan himself, and JJ and Tucker talk about the future of the podcast!
