Hello everyone!

I have many different makes, models, years and styles but I prefer the early to mid 30s wood mantle radios. I have no preference as to who made it – like most of you, if it catches my eye…

Mine are mostly of the "curtin burner" variety with the line cord resistors. Maybe it’s because of the fairly simple design, I don’t know…

One thing I DO know is that there is nothing better than to listen to an old radio in the evening during a thunderstorm as the lightening makes the signal crackle (so long as it stays away from my antenna!)
