Richard John Ploog is an Australian drummer, songwriter and singer, a member of rock band The Church between 1981 and 1990. Ploog drummed for Beasts of Bourbon in 1983, Damien Lovelock in 1988 and with fellow The Church member Peter Koppes in 1991 for an album and tour. Richard John Ploog is from Adelaide, South Australia; as a drummer, he joined various bands including, The Name Droppers, The Brats and Exhibit A. In early 1981, at the age of 18, he replaced Nick Ward. In April the band released their debut album, Of Skins and Heart and the associated single, "The Unguarded Moment", recorded late the previous year with Ward. Ploog's first recording with The Church was the five-track double single, "Too Fast for You" released in July; when Of Skins and Heart was released internationally it was re-titled as The Church with "Tear It All Away" replacing original track "Fighter Pilot... Korean War". On early record covers of The Church, Ploog was incorrectly credited with all the drumming—Ward is not listed.
Aside from drumming, Ploog contributed song writing to The Church's releases. He became involved in various side projects. Firstly, with Beasts of Bourbon as a drummer in 1983 and performing with its members, Tex Perkins on vocals and Kim Salmon on guitar and harmonica, as Salamander Jim in February 1984, he worked on The Celibate Rifles' vocalist Damien Lovelock's debut solo album, Wig Wig Wig Wig World in 1988. Ploog left The Church after recording their seventh album, Gold Afternoon Fix, released in February 1990. According to Steve Kilbey, he left the band "because of musical personal differences." He was replaced by Jay Dee Daugherty. Ploog joined The Church member Peter Koppes' group The Well to tour and record From the Well and Iridescence. Ploog has drummed for The Wigmen, The Deadly Hume and The Sleep-ins. Ploog returned to live drumming in 2013 with a series of gigs accompanying Steve Kilbey and Mark Gable, he is a member of Groom Epoch. The band have released three albums, Scalar Trails, Solar Warden and Initiation
This is a list of stops for the Boardwalk Hall Auditorium Organ, the largest pipe organ in the world as measured by number of pipes. The organ is located in the main auditorium of Boardwalk Hall in New Jersey; the organ was built by the Midmer-Losh Organ Company between 1929 and 1932. Most of the speaking stops are assigned to the pedals; the remainder are "floating" stops. The stops are grouped into "divisions", with each division providing a different collection of sounds; the "pitch" of the stop indicates the nominal length of the pipe that sounds when the key for C two octaves below middle C is pressed.
