Retro Wednesday.....






I know what your thinking...Not another radio!!
Trust me, I haven't scratched the surface of showing you all my old radios.
This is a 1947 Zenith Holiday. The 2nd pic is an E-Bay pic. To keep old radios sounding great, one has to occassionally replace a tube or so...I can do that! The bottom pic is MY Zenith Holiday. Of course it sounds GREAT!
Of course I'll NEVER sell it.
There is a reason though that I'm showing old radios today....
You'll know why on Friday...hehehehe
Peace...!!!

Oh, it's a radio. I thought it was a heater 'til you said it was a radio. You're not going to try to photograph 55 radios Friday, are you?:-)
