Friends of the Phonograph and Phonographia
Location: http://www.friendsofthephonograph.org and http://www.phonographia.com
Friends of the Phonograph is a society dedicated to remembering the phonograph. The society's red-letter days each year are birthday parties for phonographia related events. Two primary celebrations each year are April 9 (when the recording was made in 1860 by Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville's of Au clair de la lune) and December 6 ( when Edison's Phonograph was 'completed" in 1877.
The photograph (above) used for a logo of Friends of the Phonograph was taken by the celebrated American photographer Douglas Keister for his 1990 book "Black Rock - Portraits on the Playa."

The interests of the 325+ members of the Canadian Antique Phonograph Society (CAPS) range across all aspects of sound recording and its history: phonographs and gramophones, all types of sound recordings of historic importance, ephemera and related memorabilia. There is particular emphasis placed on the history of recorded sound in Canada. The inaugural meeting of what was eventually to become the Canadian Antique Phonograph Society was held on October 17, 1970 when a handful of collectors met in the Corvair Room of the Genosha Hotel in Oshawa, Ontario, with the expressed intention of forming a club.

In 1993 we were the second regional chapter (Michigan is the first) chartered under the Michigan Antique Phonograph Society.

Our Wisconsin organization is a group of dedicated collectors of phonographs, records, and anything related to the area of vintage phonographs and music. We meet four times per year for the purpose of extending our knowledge, learning from others by sharing collections and generally have a good time

The City of London Phonograph & Gramophone Society
The City of London Phonograph and Gramophone Society was formed in 1919 as the London Edison Society and is the senior recorded music society in the world. Phonograph and Gramophone Societies came into being in 1911, the first being the West London in the autumn and then the North London in December. Other societies usually started as the result of talking machine owners meeting when they brought their records - often in bicycle shops - and going on to form a group, and then a society, frequently with the support of the shopkeeper. The leading members in the establishment of our own society came from these early societies.
The banner shown celebrates the 90th anniversary of the society.

Victrola Coffee Roasters
This Seattle, WA coffee shop has the following to say about its name:
Our Story From the beginning, Victrola, named for the popular home phonograph of the 1920's, embraced the liveliness, exuberance and fun of the Jazz era. In our popular imagination the roaring 20's represent excess, prohibition, flappers, and speakeasies. The era's fingerprints mark much of what we do, from our passion for live vintage jazz to our cafes unique architectural charm.
The Phonogalerie consists in a thousand square feet of showroom space, now dedicated to the sale, repair and hire of objects related to sound reproduction and the history of music. Visitors can discover “talking machines” and recordings from every period, as well as books, posters, advertising materials and all kinds of other documents.
