Our Mission

Phonographic Memory is an independently run organization based out of San Francisco, dedicated to examining and celebrating the human experience as framed by music through vinyl records. Bridging cultures and generations, heavy collectors and casual fans, we believe in creating a global community through individuals stories, providing folklore to the physical artifact. People worldwide have a relationship with records that is equally unique and freakishly endearing, and through a multimedia platform of monthly live events, a documentary web series, topical podcast and blog, we get to the heart of that bond.
