Sometimes at lunch, I hear the organist practicing at the Spreckels Organ in Balboa Park. The organ is “the world’s largest outdoor instrument,” and has “more than 5,000 pipes” that are usually used to play a variety of show tunes and standard classical fare.

Episode 147 is an incantation to the great instrument, that has been underused these last months. Its pipes not adored by listeners, its tunes heard mostly by trees, buildings, and birds.
