Not only will he/you feel better, you'll live longer, too. Studies have shown that people having a hobby or a passion outlive those who don't.

Yes, this poor man should focus on the good things he has in his life, including his salubrious hobby.

Does anybody know anything about the Sony ICF-9740 or ICF-9740W? This radio was introduced in 1982 (I think) but had an exceptionally long production run. See amazon.com's page on it where it says the radio first appeared there in 2002:

It looks a lot like the Sony ICF-9650 I bought. But the 9650 is an older model.

Paul, there are 3 on ebay now with Buy It Now prices 20, 26, and 40 bucks:

Interesting web site:

Radio Attic looks good in part because you can get what you want at a set price. I hate bidding on eBay.

Reading about these Sony analog radios is the reason I'll buy a Sangean WR-11. may just be the last analog table radio produced.

jeffrey McMahon

I eagerly await your review, Tom, especially its AM.


Paul

Well, look what we have here. Ebay item 190247723082 - A Sony ICF-S5W!

Reputed to be among the most sensitive and selective AM/FM radios built - ever. I have one, and it's a great radio.

This particular one on ebay doesn't seem to be in such a good cosmetic condition, but depending on the price, it may be worth it. These radios are quite rare.

You think a fixation on vintage radios is bad? Now I'm into vintage TV's , too! See what I'm selling before this obsession goes too far....
