Great going. It is heartening to see someone really dedicated to restoring these vintage radios. I remember our family having a valve radio in late seventies to late eighties. I was a young child and somehow managed to hook up a Roberts Portable Tape Player, which was gifted to me by a doting uncle, and listening to my Mix Tapes as also other Tape collection. Most of all, I remember spending time every day listening to VOA, Radio Australia, BBC to catch up on the latest POP & Rock numbers on this Philips Radio. Weekend afternoons were spent in listening to Malayalam Film songs.

That radio was the soul of my music listening. See your exemplary collection of Radios brought back so many memories. Matter of fact, I was just thinking of buying a Restored Vintage Valve Radio & I thought of looking up on this wonderful forum.

Uday your post brought a rush of memories. Thanks for that.

Someday, I hope to come to your place and hear these beauties...

Hello,

Kindly view the video in link.
. This is my workshop and my collection of Vintage Radios. I am an electronics engineer by profession but beaten by Valve Radio Technology ! I have about 53 sets, which are Philips, Grundig,Westinghouse,Bush,PYE,Murphy, Mullard and HMV. I want to collect about 100+ sets and make a small museum for younger generation to see the earlier technology. I restore for my own collection as well if someone wants to restore their sets. I am in Bangalore. India.I am on 9845043014 or udaykalburgi@gmail.com.

Warm regards

My uncle has a retro valve radio. I guess it goes by Greats or Greets. Now in a bad shape, attaching few is for reference. I remember hearing those during 90s nothing beats the quality. Last I remembered that the valve replacement couldn't be found and hence it was not maintained well, resulting in given condition. Can this be brought to life??
Sorry, I think I missed the post. yes we can restore them to their original glory !- Regards Uday K 9845043014

Uday ji,

Your work and passion is exemplary. I am in Bangalore too and have a passion of collecting Turntables and speakers. Not in your league, but with similar passion on Test & Measuring instruments, tools etc.

If possible lets meet and catch up.

Regards
Anil
