Here's a picture of my Nordemende...no connection to family members, but it has gorgeously warm sound, AM & FM & SW, and a cool glowing "tuning bar"...

Ed: What do you do with a classic radio like that? Do you use it? I imagining storing it would present challenges. BTW, I bought a black WR-2 yesterday. I'll keep the documents in the event I have to return it to Amazon.

Yes, I use it. "Tube sound" has a completely different quality to it, euphonic and intimate. And a radio with a real wood cabinet is just more resonant and warm, and the lighted dial at night is great. I imagine how Edward R. Murrow might have sounded coming through a set like this. The Germans made some high-quality radios, and with proper care (& tube & cap replacement) they should last 100 years.
Anyway, let's "hear" how your black WR-2 works out...are you using it in a metal-shielded building or something? A good position is near a window.
