Whilst I love most old radios,gramophones etc i`ve always been a bigger fan of Ferris radios.Last year I decided to begin a collection.Not a complete one but rather ones that I like over others.Along the way a couple of other brands would crop up as seen by the Astor KQ (top left) but I will limit the collection to mainly Ferris.So here below:

I also have one of those Ferris Picnic portables as seen in your pic ... second from right ..with red and white push buttons . Mine still works fine . I have the cradle too . You can set it up for 6 or 12V and either POS or NEG ground
