Since I've been slacking on my Vintage Find Sundays, I thought it would be a treat to have a mid-week Vintage Find post. Plus this sweet transistor radio was begging to be photographed with a modern, graphic print. Transistor radios are so neat looking! Atomic Ranch even acknowledged their appeal and here are some beauties they found -
We've come so far with our razor thin ipods, but transistor radios still carry a nostalgic presence you don't get from current electronics. Summer days, cool nights, rocking tunes, and sneaking a beer in the backseat of a Chevy Malibu. I haven't turned on my AM station transistor radio yet. But, I can only hope when I put in that 9 Volt battery an old disc jockey, like Murray the K, will start to play The Beach Boys!
