This is the home page of Toast of New York, also known as ToNY. We are a world wide group of serious collectors and preservers of popular music from the 1900-1950 period. Our members are mostly 78 RPM record collectors. We specialize in making digital transfers of these records in order to preserve the music more safely and securely than the original, somewhat fragile, media provides. We also perform computer aided digital processing on some of it, in order to reduce noise and increase listening enjoyment.
We collect and restore as many artists complete as we are able and the members share the CDs produced among themselves. Nothing is ever sold. If you are a 78 RPM record collector, you may want to learn how to become a member. If you are anyone who enjoys the music of the 1900-1950 period, you will probably enjoy visiting the open part of our website. The open part will provide you with details about the ToNY organization. Most of the web site is accessible only to members.
