good observation kr. as ive stated here before, its the hope that you could hear and relive the earth changing events and music that these radios once broadcasted. ive often sat in front of my 1965 sony and wondered who might have been listening to "ticket to ride" by the beatles after just hearing news of some new calamity in vietnam or news of nasa triumphs on the very radio im looking at. it is all about nostalgia. oh, and one other factor, i believe the quality of these radios is to this day unsurpassed.

gerald, that is exactly the other thought i've had here: maybe if i listen to shortwave on an old hallicrafters or something, i can hear news from the past... maybe we don't like some of the ways the world turned out from then to now. so the question is, what would you change? what would you tell them back then to do differently? (saying perhaps that you had a transmitter)

well, we could tell them to take it easy on the gasoline :-)
or maybe don't let kennedy ride in that motorcade.
