I will be at the Tri County Fair in Mendota Illinois, from Friday 3pm until Monday spinning wax and celluloid. I will also do some cylinder recording demonstrations with the studio recording head. I will make some videos of the event. If you are a local collector, you can come out and heckle me :lol: if you want!

I’ve been thinking of doing a demonstration for a while now and have been in talks with local museums. How do you go about it? I don’t know what information I should have or if I should just play cylinders when asked and let people make a recording if they want..

One starts to do demonstrations by self promotion. I started collecting machine in the summer of 1986, when I was 12 years old, although I started collecting records (45 rpm at 7 years old ) and 78 rpm at 10 years old. In 6th grade, 1987 the custodian and I brought down the Victrola XXV (the only "Victrola" labeled machine with an outside horn) which needed spring work, a reproducer, and reproducer crook, (The reproducer and crook were found in the garage of a fellow student) unfortunately the horn is still missing, I used a radio horn at the time. By late grade school I had gotten into cylinder machines some, with an Amberola 30, and a Home model A, I started recording cylinders in 1994, and actually had a regular recording service recording on Miller-Morris blanks about 1996. I had also written a monthly column called "The Antique Phonograph Corner" from 1990 (16 years old) until 1997, when the paper ceased publication. I was also listed in several antique service publications. So people just called me up to do demonstrations, and for repairs.
