I've played several theatre organs built by Compton and Wurlitzer but never a Christie until today! Im playing "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" on the Christie theatre organ at the Social Welfare Hall in Harworth near Doncaster. The organ was originally built in 1934 for the Essoldo cinema in Durham and had 2 manuals and 7 ranks of pipes. It was installed here in the 1960s and had an extra manual and some extra ranks of pipes added. When playing a cinema organ my aim has always been to try and play as they did in your average 1930s surburban cinema. In otherwords - knock out the tune! The emphasis these days tends to be on "orchestral" styling etc.

Hair2wear recently announced that Sally Beauty, the world’s largest beauty retailer, will be expanding its partnership with the Hair2wear Christie Brinkley Collection. The retailer will add three more Christie Brinkley styles to its shelves in stores in every state in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada, increasing the total selection from two to five pieces. In addition, Sally Beauty will also carry all five looks on its website at sallybeauty.com/hair2wear.
“I’m absolutely thrilled at the success of our partnership with Sally Beauty so far, and I couldn’t be happier that they’ve decided to expand their offerings to include even more styles,” said Brinkley. “This has been such an incredible opportunity that’s allowed us to expand our reach to more women than ever.”
The new styles include the Fishtail Braid Headband, a headband in an on-trend fishtail pattern made to layer up or wear alone; the Full Sweeping Side Fringe, a clip-in piece that gives you all the flirty fun of bangs without the commitment; and the Natural Tone Hair Wrap, a casual yet elegant way to dress up an updo without looking overly formal. Each style is available in a wide variety of shades, ranging from Light Blonde to Almost Black.
