Thanks for visiting This Old 340 blog site. Welcome!
My name is Eric Mack and I created this blog to share my adventures and information as I restore and learn to play my Rodgers 340 “Century” Theater Organ.
For the past several years, I have been on a journey to acquire, restore and eventually learn to play a theater organ. Two years ago, I had the opportunity to obtain a Rodgers 340 and the adventure began in earnest. There’s much more to the story which I will share later. For now, I’m glad you are here.
The purpose of this site to is to share information on this magnificent organ and connect with fellow enthusiasts. I have collected a great deal of technical information on this organ from many people who were kind enough to share with me. Now I want to give back.
The site is not quite live, so if you have stumbled in early, please be patient as I moved content from my computer into this blog.
What you will find here (a condensed site map)
Sources of information you will find here comes from gifts, reading, and lessons learned.
Some of my sources of information include:
- Emails with other 340 owners
- My own experience and meetings with others
- Rodgers Theater Organ Users(RTOU Yahoo Group)
Special Thanks to the many helpful people I have met on the group and The Organ Forum who have helped me along the way.
I plan to update this page to include my organ story and other information. Please check back.
