CAPS New President Bob Nix from Sarnia Ontario, has already become somewhat of a celebrity as the Gramophone Doctor, having been prominently featured in several newspaper articles. Bob's interest began as a hobby when he decided to restore his grandfather's Canadian Berliner Gram-O-Phone some years ago. After retiring from DOW Chemical where he worked for 30 years, Bob began working full time repairing and selling phonographs for the past 8 years from his home based business. Surprisingly, most of his customers never get to see his shop, as he sells and repairs phonographs for people throughout Canada and the US. Those who come to our meetings regularly have been able to witness his growing passion as he shared his expertise with members on several occasions giving well-received demonstrations of cabinet and reproducer repairs. CAPS couldn't have a better supporter who tirelessly promotes our group to the people he comes in contact with and on his trips to phonograph shows in the Unites States. His reputation as an honest and meticulous repairman makes him a fine representative for our group. As for his Grandfather's Gram-O-Phone (shown in the photo), it enjoys a prominent place in his living room and he plans to pass it on to his son one day.

(L-R) Bill Pratt, Mark Caruana, Bob Nix, and Michael Bryan pose in front of one of the CAPS displays at the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala attended by an audience of 1000+ this past February.
Immediately, CAPS President, Bob Nix, went into overdrive to organize a team and make a plan.
Thanks, too, to Bob Nix and Bill Pratt for bringing some well-chosen records and other support material.
Not wishing to risk being stranded in the snow, Bob set out a day early and stopped over at Mike's place, ready for the shorter drive to Domenic's and on to the Gala in Toronto.
The weather on Sunday morning could not have been much worse, but with great care and patience, Bob and Mike loaded the van and set out for Domenic's, where they waded through the rapidly deepening snow, protecting the most prized machines in their arms like babies until they were safely snuggled in their blankets in the van… the phonographs, not Bob and Mike.
Twenty minutes later, as we approached the outskirts of Toronto, the snow began to lighten up and by the time we arrived downtown, there was not the slightest trace of snow on the ground or in the air…leaving Bob and Mike expounding tales of hardship to local disbelievers who had no idea what they had been through to get there. Oh well.
CSFH Disc Display So there we were at the Toronto Convention Centre, in a big empty room, all dressed more smartly than we had ever seen one another before. After pinning on some professionallooking CAPS name badges produced by Bob, the team was ready to start.

Many thanks to CAPS President Bob Nix and members Mike Bryan, Mark Caruana and Bill Pratt, for making the evening a success.
