    Here is a picture of my transistor radio collection. Been collecting 20 years and find the little pocket radios irresistible.
    The shelf is a home-made from solid oak and measures 48" X 96".

      Very cool. And they don't take up as much room as full sized radios.

      What beauthiful items you got.
      When i was seven years old i got a Heron transistor that yoy could hang on your shoulder.
      I have it for many years ago.
      And i was curious of you got someone between this transistor radios.
      i have not found.

      I have not heard of the Huron but most of these came with a leather case with a shoulder strap.
      There are many, many different models, this is just a small sample of what is available. We enjoy antique malls and when I see an interesting one that is not over-priced, I'll pick it up and give it a good cleaning and then it is put on display. I have several table top tube radios but as previously mentioned, these do not take up near the room.
      Thanks for the nice comments and I'm glad you enjoyed the post>

      My god this is amazing. I can't imagine how many of these devices I went through growing up - and of course tossed them at yard sales. Transistor radios were the iPhones of the 1950's - incredible technology you could put in your pocket... thousands of people at Dodger Stadium would watch the game while listening to Vin Scully calling the play by play. Beautiful collection, well displayed!

      These are awesome! I'm working on a show for the History channel about collectors and I think you'd be great on it. Let me know if you want to hear more.
    13. tradio, 5 years ago
      Sure, sounds good to me. Sorry it took so long to get back with you, moving...
    14. gabbyz08, 5 years ago
