I MISS LISTENING to the radio

I got rid of my car back in september. While I don’t miss parking tickets and trying to find parking on alternate side parking days, I do miss listening to the radio. Sunday afternoons were always my favorite, I was always coming or going somewhere and would be stuck in traffic listening to Prairie Home Companion. Okay so yes, I am a bit of a nerd, I always really liked old radio shows growing up and this is the closest modern area equivalent. So as an homage to this lovely radio program I bring you my top picks of vintage radios from etsy’s vintage sellers. 


A. Tabletop radio from Beloved Bag Lady $34  B. Vintage Lafayette AM-FM Transistor Radio from jadite kate $30  C. Vintage Magnavox Radio with Gold Scrollwork from vixen and prudence $40 D. Zenith from Object Petita $23

    Wow, I especially love A and C. That scrollwork is over the top!

    Also, A looks like *real* wood, which is very cool.
