Thanks for the article Bob. I love this type of stuff!

Chris,

 

Thanks for publishing this.  I had a lot of fun building the Victrola out.

This is my1942 working ,1A62 AM Wells- Gardener Coronado Radio. When I picked this up the wooden vents was caked in mud due to a flooded basement years ago. Restored the best I could, added a pr of speakers, a small amp and an Echo Dot. I love streaming talk radio stations from the area on this. It's my time machine. Also on top of the radio is a working 1932 Westinghouse fan. That also was a restoration project.

This is the other radio I have in the house.  It is now non-functional.  It was in the Dining Room.  We had a defective dishwasher that leaked in the kitchen, It soaked the floor there and ran under the wall in to the Dining Room.  At that time the Radio had been left plugged in and the cloth cord soaked up the water and shorted out.   Big mess.

VERY cool Bob!  

I had a truly beautiful 1961 Grundig Majestic that I always had plans to do something similar with.  It had a reel-to-reel deck, turntable, shortwave, and all original tubes and speaker drivers. But it had been years since it worked.  The cabinetry, wood species, and finish was what made me keep it for so long.

Below is the exact model I had, though these photos are from the web.
