Retrofitting a 1950’s era radio for modern sound


The images themselves tell the story.

I had someone come to me with a special request, to replace the insides of a great looking vintage bakelite radio with modern amplifiers and the ability to wirelessly use his ipod.

I agreed to do this and next thing I knew the radio was on it’s way.


When it arrived though, it was discovered that it had been badly damaged during shipping to me.

After careful inspection I found that all the pieces were there so I said not to worry I would completely restore the radio and do the modifications he wanted.

As you can see in the pictures it was quite the project, but it turned out fantastic and everyone was very pleased with the results.
