Better Bluetooth

Other sellers usually offer an external Bluetooth receiver that connects with a cable to the radio.  While this can work OK, these receivers run off batteries that you have to recharge with a USB cable, and the audio level is usually pretty weak.  You also may have to tune to a quiet spot on the dial to avoid having a mixture of radio and Bluetooth audio.

My Better Bluetooth is different:
  • Completely enclosed inside the radio (no cables or external modules)
  • Completely self-powered (no batteries that need to be charged)
  • Automatic switching between radio and Bluetooth (just hit "PLAY" on your device, and the radio switches to Bluetooth!)
  • Audio level same as the radio's normal volume
This is Bluetooth done right!  Better Bluetooth is available on any radio I sell for an extra charge of $35.


Emerson 652 (1950)

Emerson 652 (1950)

This Emerson 652 has an ivory Plaskon cabinet that is clean as a whistle and with good surface luster. Plaskon is translucent, so the dial light causes much of the front panel to glow in the evening light. It's a nice compact set, so it won't take up much of your display space, and shipping will be inexpensive. Like every radio I sell, the chassis has been restored to like-new performance. It's an All American Five, and its performance and sound quality will surprise you. Reception with the built-in loop antenna is outstanding. Restoration included replacement of all electrolytic and paper capacitors, several new resistors, a full RF/IF alignment, and installation of a polarized power cord with modified hot-side switch for improved safety. 9-1/4"W x 6"H x 5-1/2"D. $135.00.

General Electric LCP-596 (1942)

General Electric LCP-596 (1942)

1942 radios like this one were the very last radios produced before WWII halted production of civilian radios. This one is a classic All American Five design, anticipating what the post-war manufacturing boom of table radios would look like. The cabinet has been repainted in the original ivory color; knobs and handle (both original) are natural ivory Plaskon. The dial cover has been replaced with a crystal clear one -- the golden color you see is the metal dial itself, not an old yellowed dial cover. The chassis has been restored to my usual standard, with new capacitors, new resistors where needed, a good set of tubes, and a full RF/IF alignment. This one has also been converted from its original "hot chassis" design to a floating ground with a new polarized power cord and modified hot-side power switch for vastly improved safety. It works like new, with superb sensitivity and good sound quality. Lighted dial. 12"W x 8"H x 7"D. $120.00. (1310116)

  • Payment by PayPal preferred; money orders and checks also accepted (checks must clear before shipping).

  • Actual shipping costs are paid by buyer. Contact me to determine shipping cost to your address. Shipping overseas is possible, but the customer must be willing to pay for shipping services with delivery verification and insurance. All radios are shipped double boxed, insured, with tracking information.

  • An audio input jack can be provided on any of the radios I sell at no extra charge if you request it, and my "Better Bluetooth" receiver can be installed for $35.

  • All radios and televisions are electrically restored by me. I have many years experience and have restored hundreds of vintage radios, TVs, phonographs, and stereos. If your radio or TV arrives dead or fails within the first 60 days of normal use (and no internal modifications made by the buyer), I will repair for free. Shipping costs for U.S. and Canadian customers for repairs in the first 60 days are split (you pay for shipping to me, I pay for return shipping to you). After 60 days, normal repair and shipping fees (both ways) will apply, although my charges are very reasonable. For customers outside the U.S. and Canada, the customer must pay shipping both ways for repairs, even for those within the first 60 days.

  • If you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact me and I will do my very best to make things right.
