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 (Pozieres Ave). Our December meeting usually takes the form of a Christmas function at Bankstown R.S.L. on the Thursday before the first Friday.

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.

    The Sound Society Group is currently in recess due to lack of convenor.

    It is likely that there will be a meeting in August at the hall in Sefton and probably a Christmas function in December-details to be advised later.
