The Netherlands are a tiny, yet densly populated country. However, there are also some remote places. One is the so-called “Veluwe” area in the East of the country. It was there, in the midst of nothing more than woods, heather and strange in-land sand dunes, close to the town of Apeldoorn, that in 1918 the construction of a massive structure was started, the so-called “Radio Kootwijk”.
An illustration by Dutch…Continue

As it says in the title this is a 1940 Motorola model: 50-X-2, and its one of the most beautiful radios I've ever seen.
The spring loaded handle on the top, and bullet style knobs are all original. The dial gives off a warm, orange, glow when the radio is switched on. If you notice the speaker design it's comprised of eight fins that taper down too the lefthand side. As…Continue

I was on Etsy looking for something for a friend and I ran across this 1952 Westinghouse Little Gem or Refrigerator radio.

This is one I got on ebay for about $50, the one on Etsy.com is currently selling for $350. Sure there is about a 700% difference in price however mine…Continue

"Emerson unveiled their line-up for the 1939 season, which included the BD-197 "Mae West", at a showing held in the Hotel New York between June 20th and 24th of 1938." - writes Paul @ Tuberadioland. - "The "Mae West" was priced at $39.95."
It looks like a part of some "cathedral", "tombstone" or "console" radio. Actually, it belongs to a very non-conformist device produced by Sparks-Withington company, the Sparton brand owners.
"The celebrated Sparton "Bluebird" 566 glass mirror… Continue
