Okay, back on topic. What we like about old radios. Bob, you inspired me today--and gave me a chuckle too. I thank you.
Bob said: I know what my wife would say! ...... Old Radios, my favorite thing about them is .....they keep my husband busy and in his shop :)
I can certainly appreciate that! Here are other great comments we received:
Rick Zolla ...the great memories they bring back.
Jim Hamann They work.
Mark Floyd They glow in the dark and sound terrific. (6V6's in push-pull)
Dooley's Treasure Chest Don't forget the smell. True.
John Williams the audio is better on some old tubers without breaking the bank.
And might still be working when the sdr are DOA. Have ts520 and
sr46 that's many many yrs old, and use everyday,
I have many radios, many sill use the old glass stuff...its cool using
a radio that's 20 to 50 yrs old.
Thanks for the input everyone! Enjoyed your thoughts. As matter-of-fact, I think I'll make this an ongoing feature. If you think of anymore, please send them to: Blog Comments. I'll save them up, and when I have enough--I'll share another batch. (Almost) better than chocolate chip cookies! Just as sweet.
Till next time,
