Wish I could give more than 5 stars to this seller. Slight problem with the radio but the seller was super quick to respond and had several recommendations on how to fix issue, even providing his phone number! Issue resolved and radio is working great!!! Thank you so very much!!!

Super fast shipping and packaged with care. I plugged this baby in and without adjusting the dial, The Doors' "Light My Fire" was playing-no joke-and I was smitten with this radio. Thank you!

My store is dedicated to collectors and aficionados of antique radios.

Thank you for visiting my online store!
I work on any radios manufactured prior to 1980. Manufacturers such as; General Electric, Philco, Admiral, RCA Victor, Westinghouse, Motorola, to name a few. There isn't a manufacturer I wouldn't work on! The more obscure and rare, the better!

Any construction material; Bakelite, wood, or plastic.
Any style or style period; art deco, modernistic, retro, industrial, pre-war, post-war.
Vacuum tube and transistor electronics design. Circuit board or chassis point-to-point wiring.

I am an electrical engineer and IT industry professional for over 20 years. Repairing, restoring, and tinkering with these old radios is a hobby of mine. I repair these old radios out of my garage workshop located in rural Connecticut USA. I have sold hundreds of these old radios on Ebay for many years.

Restoring these old glories is my hobby and a labor of love. It is not my primary business. I enjoy every aspect of this endeavor from buying to repairing to selling. I would be interested in hearing the experiences of others about anything related to this hobby whether it be collecting, restoring, appraisals, etc.
