Needle in a Haystack
« on: September 16, 2017, 07:48:25 PM »


Hi does anyone have one of these radios or similar looking radio for sale? Crystal or Valve 1920's style in a wooden box?

I have a few bushbaby valve radios.

They're in the bakelite housings, not wooden boxes, and are way older than the 1920s stuff you're looking for. Probably late 1940s.

PM me should you be interested.

If he's looking for something really ancient, Gumtree has plenty of 1980s fair.

Wouldn't that make them YOUNGER?

Whoa, crystal radio! Think I was about 7 when I disassembled my dad's one from when he was a kid.  Sadly, it didn't work when I reassembled it.
