Welcome to René Rondeau's
Antique Phonograph Pages

The clipping below is an extract from a 2-page article published in the February 24, 1963 issue of the Springfield (Massachusetts) Republican. This article, and a later local TV appearance, led to my finding some exciting phonographs. (The Gem and Columbia AB are still in my collection today. They still look the same, but I don't!)
