Hi, I have been collecting 1940's radios for over ten years being introduced to Bakelite by a friend.
I had at one time 80 + radios scattered all,over the house.
I have a very understanding wife lol.
Over the last few years I have had to scale my collection down to 30 coloured and brown Bakelite radios.
My favourites radios are Astor Mickey's and I have 8 of various colours and models.
I hope to keep collecting and enjoying radios for a long time.
Regards
Paul

Mickey man to collect radios the understanding wife bit goes as thus !!!!

Dear just think I could be doing all sorts of fun things such as getting blind down the local boozer / smoking grass with the local addicts , or chasing the tart down the street ( the one with more front end than a jersey cow & more curves that the old road to Galston Gorge) but ive chosen the path of the collector ! ( very saintly )

Aint you glad dear - I'm now that straight I should be drinking buttermilk with'' Fred Nile'' - cause ive collected radios!

Mickey man that worked for me until in 1996 I hit 3000 sets, then the old girl said -----------its me or the Radios - I replied hang on il get your bags ! !!! she said WHAT !!

I SAID WELL TELL YOU WHAT, ITS A DAMN SIGHT EASIER TO PUT 2 GLOBITE SUITCASES IN THE CAR BOOT, AND YOU IN THE FRONT SEAT -- THAN TRYING TO ''MOVE OR FIND A HOME AT ONCE'' FOR 3000 RADIOS !

We came to a compromise'' in the end ''we agreed id sell up '' it worked for awhile,,,, until years later id gathered near 2000 more --- she started whining again !

Strange creatures women """" they really don't have our interest at heart ay !! we could be doing a lot worse things lol

You can't win, stay sober and celebrant , only swear each time you get 240 volts across the rear of hand - you leave her alone, go and talk to your radios - they still not happy !!!!

Radios are a good choice, you can abuse and insult em all day )))) you will never get answered back ''' lol lol !!!
