I collect, repair, refinish, restore, and sell tabletop, tombstone, and cathedral, antique radios from the 1930’s through the 1950’s.
I remember “watching” a large console radio as a kid—listening to Fibber McGee and Molly, Jack Benny, Burns & Allen, Tom Mix, and many more. Gone is the Golden Age of Radio, but many of the old radios are still here thanks to dedicated individuals who rescue, collect, repair and restore these gems of the past.
I am partial to Philco’s. My father worked at the Sandusky, Ohio plant from 1950 until it closed in 1963. I worked there in the summer of 1961. I am a 1966 graduate of Valprariso Technical Institute with a diploma in Electronic Technology.
