CAUTION!

 Do not plug in your radio if it has been sitting in the garage for the past ten years! You could get a shock and maybe damage your radio.


Note: The worse thing you can do to any antique tube or transistor radio is to not play it! They are full of mechanical switches and contacts that need to be operated. The radio will not last longer if not used. Just the opposite. So play and enjoy your refurbished radio.

Bluetooth?

Want to stream music through your Antique Radio from your Smartphone, iPod or MP3 Player?

Go to EBay or Amazon and search for a "Bluetooth Music Receiver".  These can be connected to the 3.5mm connector that I will install into your radio for $45 in most cases.

Here is how it works

 When you place the "Bluetooth Music Receiver" into the installed 3.5mm connector, your smartphones Bluetooth will connect (wirelessly) to the "Bluetooth Music Receiver". Then you can play your music, Pandora, ITunes, etc., through your radio. 

Or Connect direct

If your device has a ear phone, you can plug your device directly into the installed 3.5mm connector using a cable with male 3.5mm plugs on each end.

 


Please note

 It will not be possible to safely install the 3.5mm connector into radios designed without a power transformer. These are usually radios manufactured in the 50's. I will let you know if your radio can have this upgrade.

 


  Previous customers who have had the 3.5mm connector installed. If you do not have a lot of volume, please contact me. I have found another way to connect this to your radio that will give you more volume. I will correct your installation for free.

 


FM Radios

Those of you looking for a good antique radio with FM, try looking at the German radios manufactured in the 50s -60's. Below are some examples. Some names of manufactures are Telefunken, Nordmende, Graetz, Saba and Grundig. I know I have left out some manufactures, but you get the idea.   These radios have great reception and wonderful sound. American radios with FM before 1960 are terrible. These German radios have AM, FM Shortwave and usually a phono input for Bluetooth.
