I went to many auctions and garage sales over the years and I'm sure
my mother always wondered what we might bring home.
celebrating the Phonograph's Birthday in the early 1980's as an annual
event on December 6.
birthday presents have been given, inspired by the Phonograph, such
as pottery shaped like a record, a phonograph tapestry, miniature
phonographs, phonograph memorabilia, and special creations like the
photograph my parents staged in 1986 (see above).
of my parents re-creating Edison's most famous phonograph advertisement
is my all-time favorite phonograph birthday present.
I was fortunate
to have parents who enjoyed the journey.
ALWAYS makes me smile and tells a story that they were Friends
of the Phonograph, and much more.
