  2. "Hello, this is John Alexander from Scarborough. I'd like to say hello to all the present and future members of the Phonograph Society".
  3. "This is Larry Norton and I'm very pleased that the Phonograph Society is still going well and we're able to make another recording like the original in 1971".
  4. Man's voice: "This is ----- from Roseneath and I second that motion".
  5. Lady's voice: "I'm ----- Alexander".
  6. "Mike Batch at 45. This is the first record on a cylinder and that is something for the record".
  7. "Don Woodrow, Scarborough. Edison is my hero".
  8. "Rick Elinson, Toronto. I've got horn fright".
  9. "Brian Hill, Scarborough".
10. "Jim Carino, Mississauga".
11. "Gordon Reithmeier, Toronto, the Edison repair man".
12. "Bill Tarling from Scarborough, and you'll notice I can pronounce my name better than Basil can his".
