Conversations with Dr. Steven Greer
Show air times (US time zones):
Dr. Steven Greer and Charlie Balogh
Dr. Greer will be joined by Charlie Balogh, an accomplished musician and long-time CSETI member.
Mr. Balogh is based in Mesa AZ where he plays one of the world's largest Wurlitzer theater organs. He has several acclaimed albums and travels worldwide giving concerts. Many of you have heard on the CSETI Contact DVD his music which was inspired by CSETI experiences. He has put his outstanding musical skills to work identifying and analyzing the ET sounds and tones that CSETI has recorded during field work. This will be an amazingly informative and interesting interview to listen to and hear about the auditory evidence CSETI has recorded with "off the shelf" equipment and ad hoc groups going out in the field to make contact with Extraterrestrial civilizations.
Charlie Balogh is originally from Trenton, New Jersey. His interest in music began at age 11 at which time he started organ instruction. He studied with various teachers and eventually attended Trenton State College where he immersed himself in classical studies with Albert Ludecke, while performing in supper clubs throughout the area. For a short time, he also studied with Lee Erwin in New York.
From those beginnings, he has emerged as an exciting and dynamic performer at the theatre pipe organ. Under the guidance of Lyn Larsen, Charlie worked as a staff organist at "Organ Stop Pizza" in Phoenix, Arizona from 1973 until 1976. In 1977 he moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan to become organist at the "Roaring 20's" restaurant. In 1986 Charlie and his family purchased the business that was then re-named "Good Time Charley's."
Charlie recorded three very successful albums on the organ in his restaurant. One of those was an album called "Pipes Plus" that combined the sounds of the Wurlitzer with modern day digital keyboards. "Pipes Plus" not only won the praise of record reviewers but other professional organists as well. He also had his own radio program on WGHN in Grand Haven, Michigan. After 14 years at the console of the Wurlitzer, he decided to close the restaurant in September of 1991. He developed a monumental following of fans in Michigan during his tenure that ultimately led to a hugely successful community project to relocate the restaurant organ to the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
After closing "Good Time Charley's", Charlie decided to move back to Arizona to play for "Organ Stop Pizza," this time in Mesa, at their magnificent new restaurant which features one of the largest Wurlitzer theatre organs in the world. He has recorded a number of albums on this fabulous instrument that have won the praise of reviewers for being innovative and setting new standards of performance and repertoire. He continues on there to the delight of the hundreds of thousands of people who visit yearly. In addition to his schedule at the restaurant, he maintains an active concert schedule throughout the country and abroad including Canada, England, and Australia. For eight years he was a featured artist at the Century II Civic Center in Wichita, playing the former NY Paramount Wurlitzer with the Wichita State University Jazz Band as part of the Wichita River Festival. He has also performed on three separate occasions for the American Theatre Organ Society's national conventions and for the most recent Regional Convention in Phoenix. Charlie was also voted "Organist of the Year" by ATOS for the year 2000.
Charlie makes his home in Gold Canyon, Arizona with his wife Carrie, and and a couple of four-legged youngsters named Tammy and Mandy. In addition to playing the theater pipe organ, Charlie also enjoys composing electronic music, amateur astronomy, and hiking in the Arizona wilderness.
