I have TOO DAMN MANY RADIOS!




Seriously, half of this shit is packed away and never gets listened to!

From AIWA to ZENITH!!!

And near everything in between.

2 meter Ten Tech handheld that can't be used on modern repeaters.

Little crank radios.

Mahogany Telefunken.

1950s radios with selenium rectifiers that have and haven't gone up in smoke yet.

Tube Zenith and vintage Panasonic clock radios.

J.C. Penny pocket transistor with Cold war civil defense markings.

Philco tube Transitone with bent gang tuning pot.

I am the Captain Ahab of radio, always seeking and always missing the ones that are rarer than unicorn shit.

Just missed a 1965 tube Norwegian set with magic tuning eye, only 3,000 ever made and none for sale, only known survivor is in an Oslo museum, got outbid by 3 dollars.

I believe I should be taxedermied and put in the Radio exhibit at the Smithsonian on my passing.

Or maybe actually take an inventory, decide which ones I can live without, and sell them.

So I can buy even better ones!

MWAHAHAHAHA!
