Tube Radio Show

What an awesome looking radio. You brought back several memories for me. I vaguely remember my dad having an old stand up unit in his barn/workshop. I had several push button channel selectors. Also, I once had a table top tube am radio with a clock (about the size of a toaster). Then lastly, your station playing "Dark Lady" Wow, I had that on a 45 (if anyone remembers those kind of recordings. Thank you Jon for the memories!

Tube clock radios

So glad you enjoyed this. Once you start looking around on the internet at vintage tube radios you find that there are TONS of these things, and the photo galleries are serious eye candy if you like mid-century modern industrial design. They also have lots of tube-powered clock radios like you described. Wish I had the money and the space to start collecting these things!
