ASSG Introduction and Events

As a social group operating within the ATCS Inc., our meetings in Sydney are open to anyone who might be interested in coming along. We have meet on the first Friday of February, April, June, August and October at 8:00 PM at the Milperra Public School library. Our December meeting usually takes the form of a Christmas function at Bankstown R.S.L. on the Thursday before the first Friday. Note: Arrangements have been made to continue our meetings at the Milperra school.

At our ASSG meetings:-

  • Members bring along items of interest to display and give a talk about.
  • Most meetings I bring along a portable gramophone and a selection of records to play. Anybody is welcome welcome to bring along anything to show and demonstrate.
  • Sometimes members bring along a new acquisition to display and talk about.
  • The above is followed by supper (biscuits with tea and coffee) and great conversation.
  • As the name implies our interest is in antique sound and anything related. Machines (which includes gramophones/phonographs, music boxes, player pianos, tape players etc), radios including crystal sets, books on the subjects of sound/radio/machines/ recording etc, ephemera etc, etc. Basically anything sound related!

    We have other interests as well. For example, some of us are interested in model railways and other collectibles. So we have "Other Hobbies" nights as well.
