The echoes of radio's golden age can still be heard today, spawning everything from Spielberg-ian remakes to superhero vehicles for Alec Baldwin...back when he was legally allowed near vehicles. Hear those echoes more directly with Radio Age.
Recently launching their e-store, SD's Age is run by a dude with a Ph.D. in biochem and a crafty woodworker, and specializes in restoring rescued radios from the '30s/'40s to their original beautiful/working condition by refinishing wood, replacing grill cloths, and even "paint[ing] some of the plastic models wild colors", though unlike those at Playboy parties getting the same treatment, they'll actually be bearable to listen to. Wood-encased music boxes include the slatted-speakered, circa-'47 Silvertone "Candy Cane" with a swirled brown cabinet and tuner circling its dial, a gold-grilled, World's Fair-commemorative "Century of Progress" model from '33 which looks like a treasure chest from Atlantis, and the mahogany-cabinet'd AM/FM tuner "Jet" that resembles an inverted phallus, which for all Rex Ryan knows, is actually how it looks. Non-wood receivers range from 1924's Crosley "Pup" (the first radio to sell for under ten bucks) with an aluminum cabinet and exposed Radiotron tube on top, to 1946's Bendix "Catalin" with green/yellow cabinetry & dials, to a small '49 number dubbed the "Metal Midget", also the band name for shredding LP's putting out LP's.
They'll also happily take take on custom restoration orders, giving your seemingly useless piece of junk one more time to shine like old, even if you're tuning it to (30) Rock.
