Show and Tell Friday

videothis is an old tube type radio that still works. You have to turn the radio on and let it warm up for a few minutes and voila!! It only gets am channels. I am afraid to use it very often because I do not know where you would go to get replacement vacuum tubes!!! Does anyone know?

This is for Show and tell Friday---hosted by Kelli at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/

  1. That is so neat! My Daddy always had old radios around and that kind of reminds me of one of his. I have a fun plastic one from the 50s and keep it on top of my fridge. I can't remember if mine works or not, I just like how it looks! I love yours!

  8. How neat! I can remember when TVs had tubes that had to be taken out and replaced every once in a while. My husband's mom has a big old timey radio.

    My husband suggested getting the number off the vacuum tube and Googling the number with the words "vacuum tube" to see what comes up. Maybe even try Ebay?

  11. I love those old radios!
    My own parents listened to these kinds of radios and also those big console types in the 30's! I would love to have one day, too! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Ah yes, I remember the days when you had to wait for your radio (and your TV) to "warm up" before anything happened! Gosh, that was a long time ago. So cool that it still works so well.

  13. Ha ha ha ha. Do you listen to it while rocking in your rockingchair, wearing hornrimmed glasses and knitting?

    PS: I love that radio.

  14. I love your old radio. My sister has a big floor one that was passed on to us. You know, we were looking for some part to an old reel to reel projector and actually found that Sears had them. You just never know till you ask!
    ps about my movie chairs- they are just the standard theater chairs before they were made with drink holders! They are padded and we covered them with a nice burgandy fabric. We purchased 7 of them and got a great deal!
